    March 10, 2019 - Very nice wine that looks young win the glass. Nice aroma of red fruits, game and pepper. The taste was silky offering flavors of red fruit, game meat and pepper.

    March 9, 2019 - Decanted by a friend at home around 2pm and tasted from 6pm through 9pm. This started out very soft and reticent but as it got more air (after 4 hours) it opened up and was very good with braised short rib and pappardelle. Soft, fully integrated tannin and medium- acidity. Spicy, with plum, cherry and savory meat elements. Plenty of life left but quite enjoyable in an old-school style.

    March 3, 2018 - Bricking slightly. Notes of black pepper and bacon on the nose. A bit lean these days with fruit having faded and not much of interest to replace it. Showed better 3-4 years ago.

    January 20, 2018 - Decant for 45 mins, lots of residual at the bottom.

    Appearance : pale to medium garnet, tears with petillance.

    On nose : medium intensity, just a subtle of red fruit : cherry, truffles, liquorice, pine, beacon, some black pepper spiciness. A bit old but still have complex territory aroma.

    On palate : medium intensity flavour, medium+ acidity, medium+ but fine tannin desolved by the time of aging, medium alcohol, medium body. This wine is a bit over peak but still got medium+ body, quite pleasant on palate. Some old black tea, pine and spiciness with medium finishing.

    Despite of the starting of the declining conditions, it is still pleasant and balance. Even tough 2000 is a terrible year for Hermitage, it turns to elegant style as time goes by. It just like a man just retired at this point, no harsh feeling but no vividness as well. I still love this as it should be drunk now, to enjoy the sunset of the life of this wine.

    Some previous comments were so negative, I believe that is because of the cellaring conditions more than the wine itself. Cheers!

    August 12, 2017 - From our cellar. We enjoyed this wine with a MT Ribeye. It was better than 8 years ago. It doesn't seem to have evolved very much. Barely bricking. Nice nose. Very clear and fresh, young tasting. Fairly light in weight, cherry, pepper & mineral on the palate, fair acidity. It is developing some secondary characteristics. Seems like it has more time, but it is very good place right now. Not sure I'd chance holding it more than 4-5 more years.
