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.
December 9, 2017 - End of the night of serious quaffing so I am not sure how this was I know I liked it.
October 5, 2017 - Bruised apples and raisin sweetness - delicious
February 25, 2017 - for me VdC alwaya delivers. It is like an pre-matured Yquem. dark golden in colour, but fresh in taste, coconut, vanilla, dried apricot, figs, dates and honey, very balanced, great length, it fits perfectly to creme brulee and chocolate postres, reached not his end even I think it won't get better
November 28, 2016 - A toast at Thanksgiving to past memories and to the creation of new ones - to those who passed away. to those who are living and to the those yet to be born; strong powerful unique wine with various fruit and dessert tastes - complex and requires thought to appreciate...sweet, not syrupy and balanced with tart and tang. one for the ages

September 25, 2015 - Great nose marmalade and spice, some vanilla too
Great intensity, more marmalade, dried fruit
Sweet with superb balance, mouthwatering acidity
Superb and still so young
November 13, 2014 - Nez abricot, fruit confit et pointe d'épice. Reste frais et aérien.
Beaucoup de volume en bouche, grosse liqueur. Finale sur quelques amers (orange).
La liqueur marque l'ensemble qui finit par manquer de définition. Le vieillissement l'affinera probablement.
