    January 27, 2022 - Sealed with one of those weird futuristic fake corks that Laurent seems to have instituted from this vintage onward (my '09s and '11s also have them but '07s do not). Maroon color with a slight orange rim that appears a bit more advanced than I'd like to see for a wine this age. Seems a bit reduced on the nose, with some cabbage notes, but fortunately this blows off and the wine is much prettier on the palate. Crunchy, bright cherry fruit accented by minerals, olive wood, and thyme/bay leaf herbal notes. Bright and lithe, with a slight chewiness on the back end. Lacking a little stuffing in the midpalate but still rather enjoyable.

    April 1, 2020 - Ripe red fruit and classic Burgundy on the nose. Powerful fruit for 2008 with nice structure but also straightforward. Delicious not a whole lot going on. (Tasted head to head with Lambrays MSD Les Loups which was more complex)

    Red fruits. Quite good intensity of aromatics. Rather 2 dimensional on the palate. Didn't impress much.

    March 14, 2018 - Very similar to last bottle several years ago. Nose had a bit of funk but blew off with time. Big, concentrated, but very pure. Very pretty dark purfume. Very long. Wish we had more.

    October 2, 2017 - Very pale purple red.
    Obviously a baby, but such pure, refined animale, mineralite, pomegranate! Feminine.
