Community Tasting Notes 11

    April 12, 2020 - Dense, deep ruby with slight lightening at the edges. Stunning nose of fresh cranberries and raspberries. Very juicy on the palate with powerful but ripe tannins that give the wine a nice bite and structure. The fruit is beguiling and clean, while the alcohol (14.5%) is well integrated. Honest, classic style. Slightly drying finish, but otherwise exceptionally convincing in my view. Drinking beautifully now, but this will last decades and may even gain some more complexity.

    January 18, 2020 - Académie des Cinquante Saint-Emilion Tasting (Restaurant Bolenius *, Amsterdam, NL): Tasted blind (wine 17): Slightly earthy, shows age, complete, sturdy, lacks some aromatic finesse and length, 90. Tasted semi-blind: Relatively fresh and floral nose, toasty, firm and tannic, quite extracted, good length but drying finish, 91.

    February 23, 2019 - Appearance: Bright and clear, the wine is of deep ruby colour, with fading rim and legs.
    Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of black fruit of bilberry, plum and blackcurrant, red fruit of raspberry, oak notes of toast, kernel notes of cocoa and coffee, maturity notes of tobacco. The wine is developing.
    Palate: Dry with medium acidity, the wine has medium (+) tannin of ripe and velvety texture, medium (+) alcohol and medium body, with medium (+) flavours of black fruit of blackberry and plum, oak notes of toast, kernel notes of chocolate, sweet spice of clove. The wine has a medium finish.
    Conclusion: Very good quality St-Emilion with good concentration on the nose, showing good complexity in aromas, the wine has a similar flavour profile, with robust and structured body, and an intense palate showing reasonable length on the finish. It is ready to drink now though can benefit from further ageing of another 3-5 years.

    September 20, 2017 - Not the most powerful wine but wonderful balance of cassis, raspberry, tobacco with fine tannins. Very classic style.

    June 12, 2016 - A lot of tobacco, cassis and plum. Better after 2 days bottle open.
