    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.

    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 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.
