    May 22, 2021 - The previous notes of the 2000 vintage are applicable to this vintage. Interesting how this vintage shows more primary fruit, menthol and liquorice. Earthy flavours are less prominent here.

    August 17, 2013 - Bouteille ouverte, mais non decanter 2 heures avant. Rubis-pourpre intense, disque legerement tuile. Jambe moyenne. Nez de sous-bois, cuire tres leger et un peu de mures. Tres peu de fruits, asser instringent. Le tout s'armonise un peu apres quelque temps dans le verre. 7 heures apres ouverture, c'est vraiement mieux. Fruit rouge et tanins adoucis. Finalement il lui fallais plus de temps pour ce presenter.

    July 14, 2012 - Un bon Roccato 1997... un peu vieux mais ça finissait bien le souper. Tanique, fruit (prune, cassis, épices ) et court en bouche. La robe plutôt tuilée et très opaque.

    April 19, 2012 - Lots to like here, but it's the aroma that strikes me most. Clove, tobacco, smoke, cranberry, oak combine for a nicely complex nose. Black cherry on the front of the palate, with smoky tannins dominating the finish. Tannins are still very assertive, even at 12.5 years old, but this nevertheless drinks easily. Very enjoyable.
