    February 14, 2022 - From 375cc, sadly my last btl of this. It has been 6+ years since I have checked in with one of these. This is truly a very lovely and nuanced St Emilion at this point. As before, this punches way above its weight. Classic plummy fruit, cocoa, tar, and thyme. Medium finish. This seems to be on a very long plateau.

    December 24, 2021 - Unctuous blasting black fruit, branbkes, smoke. Fades a bit into refined traditional perfumed dark fruit. Good but not great

    June 11, 2021 - Decanted off lots of fine sediment. Gorgeous deep, rich, pure maroon colour. Rather shy nose to start that takes some coaxing and then aromas of red plum, boysenberry, cassis, fennel seed, cedar and suede unfurl. Lovely nose! Full bodied, dry and still surprisingly tannic on the palate, but good fruit extract and pitched acidity. The flavours are all deep red and black fruits, lots of black plum, a bit of bramble, charred oak, sous bois and chalk. Very smooth and nicely integrated. Finishes long, juicy and with lingering fruit. No where near past its prime. Drinking beautifully right now! Sadly, this was my last bottle.
