    February 2, 2020 - Past its prime. Some fruit …. cherry, black berry. Bitterness, black tea and some tar on the finish. Still some dusty drying tannins .. not puckering. Slight caramel flavours which eventually went away. Old, dusty, tired.

    March 2, 2016 - Perfect to drink now, cherry, liquorice, tabacco, long lenth, nice tannins. Decanted for an hour.

    September 3, 2015 - Grenat avec disque légèrement briqué.
    Au nez, pruneaux, casis, canelle, poivre, peu etre une touche de vanille subtile.
    En bouche, fruits rouges, tanins encore présents mais plutot intégrés, assez long. Très bien, mais pourrait attendre encore.

    January 20, 2015 - Chocolate core with brownish crimson edge and orange rim; some soy, brown backing spice, sour cherry and strawberry, fennel, seems like Sangiovese on nose; fuller palate, good nobility, ripe and raisiny; ok.

    July 21, 2014 - Grenat intense avec disque rubis légèrement briqué. Au nez, épices(canelle, girofle), un peu terreux. En bouche, fruits rouges mures, bleuets, un peu de vanille sans que ce soit exagéré, tanins bien intégré, le bois pourait tout de même s'adoucir un peu, légère astringence en fin de bouche. Bonne longueur.
