    January 23, 2022 - Young color - can’t believe it has reached 33 years. Still hint of blackcurrant on the nose+ dried fruits. Smooth start - evolves with fruit and berries - loong aftertaste. Perfectly structured and will keep easily for 10 more. A superb wine.

    December 30, 2021 - Mushrooms, red fruit, a hint of smoke, and tobacco on the beautiful, deep, and complex nose. Good acidity with quite integrated yet slightly grippy tannins, red cherries, cedar, underwood, and cassis on the palate. Long finish. This is in a great spot right now!

    December 28, 2021 - Vilken lycka! Pang på, rätt in i mål med mina preferenser. Detta vin är en klassisk Bdx med jord, stallar (brett med brett) och precision i balansen mellan syra, frukt och tanniner. Tidig mognadsplatå och kommer leva länge. Spännande, komplext och riktigt jäwdra bra.

    November 17, 2021 - Jim's btl tonight w/Vincent's fabulous 9 course dinner with 12 close wine buddies at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis marking my retirement in days. Semi opaque ruby red color. Shines most on the nose with its terrific cigar ash notes. A mostly resolved & elegant palate with still some youthful textures to further resolve but still an all together pleasing & charming example of St Julien currently. 92+/93
