    July 18, 2022 - Drank at 67PM Singapore, decanted & drank, ripe & powerful nose but everything in check, just about in its window as some secondary aromas emerge, a food wine, lovely, love Ducru

    July 2, 2022 - At least 2 hours bottle decant before drink, a masculine wine with black fruits dominate, still a bit tannic when air time is not enough, but if you wait too long in the glass to drink, it become too acidic and unbalanced, quite weird.. But overall good drink if you can catch the beautiful moment after sufficient decanting.
