    February 17, 2022 - Inky, big blood red. Decanted 6 hours and 4x decanted. And still very youthful. Nose was still a bit hot at the outset, but that eventually blew off. Rich and dense. Licorice and some herbal notes, with loads of black fruits. A long time before this hits its stride.

    November 20, 2021 - Why do I keep opening a bottle?! I can’t seem to learn from my previous notes. This wine needs to be locked-up and put away until I retire from my career.
    Slow ox’ed for approximately an hour then drank for the next 3 at a friends-gathering in San Francisco. Enjoyed with various Japanese nd Thai food. Classic Bordeaux, old-fashion compared to 2009 Kapcsandy Grand Vin that was also opened and enjoyed by the group.

    November 19, 2021 - Dark ruby, long legs, red fruit forward ripe blueberries , light nectarines , light leather, graphite . Dry, full body, strong frontal tannins, juicy berries with vanilla finish. Probably better to age longer in bottle.

    November 5, 2021 - Deep dark core, almost black to the rim. Mineral tones almost like black coal, a bit minty, fine black forest berries. Some tones of vanilla. Full bodied, almost sweet attack, the mid palate is full of fruit, the fruit is almost cooling and minty, the tannins are perfectly designed, high acidity. The aftertaste is very long, and there are some very intriguing mineral tones that probably will strengthen over the next decade. A wonderful version of this wine. 95

    September 4, 2021 - Blackberries, cherries, blueberries and some cedar notes. Powerful but not overdone - great elegance and balance. Velvety tannins - feels very round. Nice soft acidity. Beautiful long finish. Not exactly at the top spot but slowly getting there. Drink from 2024 onwards. (IG)
