    October 26, 2019 - Truffles and a couple of bottles: Plum, graphite, red currant, ash - good aromatics and fragrance. Approachable even with the strong tannic firmness. Persistent with ultra classy fruit. Great to check in on this, but more time needed.

    July 20, 2019 - This is not complely ready yet. Very good wine but will come together some more. Nose with ripe plum, blackberry and some oak. Powerful palate. Creamy, tasty, grippy, oaky. Hold for at leest 3 years.

    June 12, 2019 - Attractive bouquet, berries fruits, cedar, tar. Fine tannin and some level of acidity that provide freshness for the palate. Strong cellar potential. Unique evolution of the wine as time passes by.

    Decant for about 2 hours.

    September 21, 2018 - Dark plum, red liqorice, clove, aniseed. Delicious, rounded fruit flavor, nice freshness, carrying just a little heat on the finish. Needs time as it is still quite youthful but should be delicious in another 5 years or so.

    September 17, 2018 - Full bodied and packed to the gilled with layers of juicy, sweet, chocolate coated, black cherries and plums. Stubbornly hanging on to its youth, the wine is concentrated, long, round and tannic. There is freshness, purity and a wealth of fruits in the finish that move from black cherry, to sweet, deep plum effortlessly. This is going to age quite nicely.

    (Chateau Trotanoy Pomerol) Rather serious and reserved nose, with a firm, plum skin quality. The palate is very fleshy though, with a very nice fruit quality. Good tannins, ripe although substantial and meaty. They are very well covered by the fruit, although being critical there is a little hint of flatness to the texture through the midpalate. But there is a fine substance to it, and a big tannic finish. This could be excellent.
