    May 6, 2022 - Light brick transparent red. Musky nose at first then the Morey salinity/gamey comes to life after a bit complimented with cinnamon, red fruit, asian spice. Light earth, dried herbs palate. Light finish but accentuates the red fruit. Nearing end of run. Enjoyable. Drink

    April 1, 2020 - Complex nose with Clove, Anise and ripe red fruit. More cinnamon on the palette with really vibrant acidity. One of the better 2008's I've tasted. (Head to head with 2008 Ponsot MSD Alouettes which was nice but more straight forward, less complex)

    February 18, 2018 - Decanted this for a few hours. The nose is gorgeous, with a floral and red-fruited complexion. There's a hint of whole cluster as well. The palate is very much the same as the nose, but the whole cluster seems to poke out a little bit here. Unlike some other 2008s that I worry about drying out, this has held up extremely well at age 10. There's ample red fruit here, but the acid and tannin still provide a pretty solid structure for the fruit. Very good: there are elements here that remind me of the 1996 Dujac Clos Saint Denis that I had yesterday. I think with time, this might evolve very favourably. I'm not touching my Clos des Lambrays at all.

    October 8, 2015 - Light to medium red with brownish edge; pronounced grassy nose; lean and structured, a bit acidic, pine, tannic grip, nice light ripe fruit underneath; long aftertaste; nice and correct but no whao factor, The green style goes through it all
