    December 3, 2021 - Not bad for an off year vintage, however, this is not a wine to be adding to your cellar for the long term. It is a very pleasant drink but lacking real substance.

    December 1, 2021 - Belated birthday dinner: On opening this was very attractive with ripe fruits but turned very green after a while - so this is how Bordeaux used to be when it couldn't ripen properly. On the second day the greenness dissipated but it was still rather hollow on the palate.

    August 27, 2021 - Beautiful dense and promising St.-Julien bouquet with strawberry, wood, tar, pencil shavings. On the palate the rudiments of elegance are there, pleasant intensity, but in the end too acidity dominated and rather one-dimensional. Some interesting fruit notes in the reasonably long finish but altogether a rather austere experience. Did not improve after several hours in the decanter.

    July 23, 2021 - Best bottle of the lot (so far). Really open and singing -- dominated by tobacco, with some berry fruit remaining. Great length. Probably at peak but will sustain this for some time.

    June 20, 2021 - According to CT, the last bottle I had of this was in 2017. And for an “off” vintage, this is drinking decently today. You get that cedar/spice box note on the nose, with blackberry fruit on the palate. Not bad at all, and this doesn’t feel in the least bit tired, so consider this drink or hold.
