    March 1, 2021 - Dark, bold, with melted tannins balanced by dark fruits, a hint of raisins, long, a bit rustique. Amazing as always and immortal obviously thanks to 65% Mourvedre from old vines I suppose.
    Incredible PQR.
    Bottle conditions might vary increasingly, so drink up rather sooner than later.

    July 12, 2017 - Another great bottle. Now definitely on its peak.

    March 18, 2016 - Intense fruit. Soft tannins. Dark berries. Long finish. Very nice to sip as well as drink with food.

    November 8, 2015 - Dark, bold and fullbodied, a bit simple and straight forward but with an excellent QPR (bought it for less than 10 €), profits from a day in an opened bottle oder 2 hours in a decanter. 4 or 5 bottles were like this. One bottle was lighter and further developed but flawless nevertheless. So drink now.
