    March 4, 2019 - Sumptuous in the extreme; rich and deep yet light on its feet, with superb balance and integrity
    Dark and plummy, ripe, opulent, and I WANT MORE.
    Outstanding

    February 22, 2019 - An intoxicating perfume of ripe berries, black truffles and kirsch.

    So wonderfully smooth and rounded on the palate, it is like drinking liquid silk. Powerful but feminine, with a seamless finish.

    Easily another 2 decades ahead.

    Pure and sexy!

    February 9, 2019 - Backward, this stubbornly youthful, potentially stunning wine is holding out. It takes at least 2-3 hours of air here before its purity of fruit, vibrant, floral, truffle and chocolate covered plums starts to shine. Powerful, concentrated and intense, it is going to take at least 5 more years in the cellar before this starts to pop.

    January 1, 2019 - Bottle was flawed

    December 31, 2018 - Great nose, distinctively Pomerol and restrained in the Trotanoy style. The palate isn't in harmony with the nose., it's pretty tight and unyielding. The rich food we're having helps that out a bit, but it's still a bit of a chore. This should be a great wine one day, but it'll take a while longer to get there, maybe 10 more years.
