    December 8, 2019 - (Decanted for two hours)
    Deep red colour with blue red hue. Nose showing an incipient maturity with leather, cedar wood and truffles and at the same time showing lots of primary fruit and oakiness. Still austere tannins on the youthful and fruity palate , but with time it starts showing herbs and some dried notes before the nice and fresh finish showing a touch of bourbon vanilla.
    (Best 2023-2038)

    January 31, 2019 - (Decanted for one hour)
    Maturing nose showing sweet red berries, wet soil and some herbs in a pleasant way. Palate is still dominated by austere tannins and need more time to smooth out, hopefully enough fruit to match each other over the coming decade. This should perform better with a few more years of cellaring.
    🍷Best 2020-2025

    July 24, 2016 - I must have been drunk when I was in France in May and tried this wine and thought it was great. It´s not! Its a boring Bordeaux wine with no character or finesse at all. Sorry, but at least I got 7 more bottles to use in my red wine sauce´s the following years or serve to drunk guest late at night. I don´t think this wine will improve much more. a bad wine is a bad wine

    November 14, 2015 - Dark red colour with a blueish hue. Nice, but still youthful nose showing meat, cedar and violets. Palate filled with austere tannins than needs much more time to soften. Best 2018-2028.

    April 11, 2015 - Powerful flavours of currant, cedar, violet, lilac and grape cola. The tannins are soft and the wine has a weighty texture in the mouth. The acidity is waning but it drinks just fine right now.
