    December 4, 2021 - More candied fruit than 01 vintage, considered challenging vintage but well made. Dark fruits and dark chocolate at the finish. Young and tannic. Pronounced flavour intensity and long finish. Surprisingly not ready yet.
    Detailed tasting experience refers to my 96 vintage note.

    March 25, 2021 - Consistent with the 375 we drank back in 2019, but showing a bit more of everything. If I had just judged on color, I probably would have said "over the hill", especially in light of the '01 we had a couple of days ago. But this one had lovely aromatics and a palate with nice aged notes.

    February 18, 2021 - Very ripe plummy flavours, followed by nuanced notes of forest floor, mushrooms, oak and ham. Tannins have completely resolved. It is very easy to like and enjoy. But is far from remarkable to justify the price nowadays.
