    June 3, 2021 - Slow ox for one hour. This wine disappointed me a bit and I almost wondered if it was an off bottle. Black currant, herbs, smoke, a little wood. Full bodied, taut, big a little ungiving and not showing much complexity. Should I have decanted it more?

    May 31, 2021 - So while the 15,2% is well hidden the wine feels like it lacks a bit of focus and the somewhat creamy texture just didn’t work for me today even at age 14 it’s quite primary maybe it needs more time but this was my only one

    May 28, 2021 - Just perfect at this 12th year in bottle. Nose muted after few hours open, the fruit is there, rustic feel, then acids, tannins, all in balance and all know their place. More austere than the same year Merlot had the other night.

    May 22, 2021 - This was just lovely with a double decant. back in the bottle for 3 hours. I must admit, without formal notes on prior bottles, I don't think was as good from a fruit standpoint as it was a few years ago, but it was very, very enjoyable. What was evident however was that the empty bottle weighed more than most full bottles of Bordeaux. They have a lot of money in the bottle.

    April 22, 2021 - For Once I actually agree with the "EXPERTS" as this was absolutely outstanding last night. Subtle nose of earthy tones, minerals, as it pours to a deep ruby color. As it opened flowers and berries take over and from the 1st taste a deep explosion of bright fruits of blueberry and blackberry. Surprisingly sweet tannins not the deep chunk I like were actually perfect for the finish and as the hour wore on, it got even better as it opened. Can easily store for a few more years Outrageously good!
