    June 3, 2018 - Very French nose and initial palate, it didn’t showed it’s age which make me believe it can still live another 5+ years. Decanted for 30 min and drank over 2 hours.

    This is not at prime but it’s enjoyable and delicate wine.

    April 8, 2018 - Pop and pour. Surprisingly good for the vintage with plenty of sweet red fruit still shining through. Secondary notes are also there with leathery red fruit, cherry chapstick, and cedar all around. Has a few more years to go but definitely at/past peak.

    April 1, 2018 - I did not enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed other vintages. This felt similar to the '96 and is made in a style that is a bit too hot and extracted. It lacks the balance of the better vintages. Certainly not tired or near over the hill, but I don't know that this will be much better in another 5-6 years.

    February 14, 2018 - After reading some notes on this wine and vintage, I wasn't sure whether or not to open this up on Valentine's day, Feb. 14th ?

    Thankfully I did ... an Awesome bottle of wine !!!

    On opening, the cork was full of dark fruits and berries ... a great sign !

    Decanted about 1hr and drank over the next 3hrs+ .. it really started to shine after about 1hr into the decant.

    A bit of sediment on the bottle edge as one would suspect.

    At the start, maybe a bit astringent but that went away after about 30 mins.

    After 2 hrs in, although the nose was still a bit muted, a good amount of fresh dark berries, herbs, spice and almost a 'forest' floor, maybe even some cedar notes come through.

    Just a great bottle overall .. not sure of the other comments, but I sure wish I had more of this one.

    An exceptional bottle in maybe not such a great year ? Definetely a treat to drink !!!

    Paired with roasted rack of lamb & mashed potatoes.

    An easy 94+ !!!

Community Recommendations

but the wine was still good: artichoke with garlic-lemon mayo, Not the best pairing, then roasted arctic char with asparagus (did well with the fish).
