    November 14, 2017 - Served side-by-side with a 2006 Beau Sejour Becot which was clearly WOTN.
    This Paloma was not what I had enjoyed with previous bottles of the 2001 and the 2007. This bottle was very disappointing - think stewed dark fruit. Did it suffer from a period of heat at some point? Possibly.

    September 17, 2017 - My last and caught just about in time.
    The core of vey ripe blackcurrant/dark berry fruit is taking on a jammy brûlée character and getting somewhat out of balance as the liquorice, spice and acidity has started to fade and the deadening truffle element starts to come to the fore. Almost sweet feel as the grippy elements dissipate with age.
    Still good but well off its excellent best and for drinking up yesterday.

    July 24, 2017 - Much as my two recent notes. Fully mature and for drinking over the next twelve months.
    One more to go.
