    March 13, 2022 - Wonderful! Already mature enough to enjoy. Smooth tannins, silky mouth feel. Perfect balance between fruit and earthy notes. Needs one hour to fully open up. Coffee, cocoa.

    February 28, 2022 - Still on the young side of life, but very much delicious at the moment. drank with short decant only in restaurant, slightly too fresh, but it developed so nicely over dinner! Relatively integrated tannins, very silky, but supportive enough for the aromatics of St Emilion, notably cloves, mushrooms, dark berries, a touch of mint and cinnamon. All very nicely coming together with the beef Wellington. So that would be a buy, and hold and drink :-)

    December 30, 2021 - Mint, black currant, tar, dark plum. On the palate, full bodied, high tannin. Lacking a little complexity and fruit in the mid-palate. Hard to say and I may well be wrong, but I think this is drinking around peak around now. As tasty as this is, I’m not sure it has the balance to age gracefully from here.

    September 5, 2021 - Son nez a évolué d'arômes floraux et végétaux à des arômes boisés ainsi que des notes animales. Pot-pourri, herbes de Provence, écurie, fruits confits...très complexe ! Saveurs de fruits mûrs avec des tannins poussiéreux et bien intégrés. Texturé, mi-corsé, ample et harmonieux. Longue finale sur de notes d'épices et de griotte. Délicieux maintenant et boire d'ici 4-5 ans.

    May 20, 2021 - Have not opened for 4 years. Nose of barnyard, black cherry, cassis, spring flowers, and allspice, nose improved for the next 30 minutes, same on the palate, medium/big body, elegant, mouth filling fruit, my favorite Chateau, at peak, time to enjoy is now, and a long, long, long flavorful finish and lovely aftertaste. Other taster agreed. This blew away the 2005 Sloan Red Wine-not even the same league.
