    August 31, 2020 - Probably a couple of years past when I should have consumed it. Still pretty good.

    March 27, 2020 - Decanted and served. Gorgeous mature CdP with fully integrated dried cherry and herbs on the palate and long, seamless finish with salted caramel and saucy acid. Drink now.

    March 12, 2020 - Opened to breathe for 2-3h. Musty candy compote on the nose, on the palate, more flabby compote, and with time interesting black pepper around the edges of the mouth. The finish has more intensity than when it first reaches your tongue. Light to medium bodied, and very mature, if not over the hill. Still interesting, if in decline. 89/90

    February 3, 2019 - Terrific wine. Drank from 3L format and very fresh. Ultra smooth tannins, lush fruit and long finish. Drinking very well now.

    January 13, 2019 - Aromatique très fruitée, très mûre : fruits cuits (figue, fruit rouges et noirs), les épices ainsi que quelques notes très discrètes d'évolution (vague sensation truffée par moment). Je ne m'attendais pas à un tel fruit pour un vin de 20 ans.
    Bouche puissante, riche mais qui garde de la fraîcheur (rehaussée par du perlant à l'ouverture) évitant toute sensation de saturation. La texture est de velours, très agréable. Aucune sensation de chaleur malgré les 15,5° affichés au compteur mais j'ai volontairement servi un peu frais.
    Longue persistance sur les fruits avec à nouveau la figue bien présente.

    Méconnaissable par rapport à la précédente qui était usée (même provenance, même stockage). J'ai même l'impression que celle-ci était encore plus jeune que celle de Paul, le vin n'ayant rien perdu entre le midi et le soir si ce n'est son perlant. Il avait même gagné en qualité de bouche qui était encore plus harmonieuse.

    très très bon, je ne m'attendais pas à autant de fruit à cet âge !
