    April 30, 2020 - Popped and poured. Medium and dark golden. This has a terrific noble nose of pineapple, quince and spice. The wine is delicious, medium bodied, suave and elegant. The palate has marmalade, tropical fruits and cinnamon. Overall this was really terrific and is in a perfect drinking window. Fully mature but this can continue to age over the next ten years.

    December 16, 2017 - It's not often I get to taste a Vin de Constance, especially with some ageing. Opened and drunk immediately to accompany a chocolate dessert, which paired well. Medium orange colour, the nose and palate show several fruit flavours, e.g. orange, pineapple, tropical fruit. This is a delicious wine, with rich flavours and great length. I'm sure it would keep for another 10-20 years if we hadn't opened it.
