    June 10, 2012 - See my former note. I think it still can be cellared for say - 5+ years. A very good wine to a very low price

    January 2, 2011 - Medium to deep red. Nice smell, although somewhat closed. Clear hint of blackcurrant. Smooth start, well structured middle stage and a nice - medium long after taste. A correct and good Bourdeax - a smart buy

    October 13, 2008 - Surpricingly nice fruit, hints of tobacco and leather. Nice adicity, some tannins. I actually liked this better than the 2000-vintage.

    September 12, 2004 - A bright young ruby colour. Very pleasant youthful nose with lots of soft plummy black fruit, a touch of crème de cassis richness and fresh mint. A light, fresh attack leads to a very young, crisp tasting wine. Unfortunately it doesn't quite have the same fruit in the mouth as it did on the nose, but it is soft, clean and well made. There is a certain raw green-ness to the fruit. A good tannic structure comes to the fore towards the finish, growing and adding a bitter touch on the finish. This seems almost like a barrel sample, and it would be interesting to try again in 6-12 months time to see if it has knitted together more. As it is, it's promising with some good structure and a youthful elegance. Decanting a few hours in advance and giving it a good exposure to air will undoubtedly do this wine nothing but good, making the tannins recede a little and the fruit show through more. Very Good.
