    March 11, 2019 - Solid wine. A tad tired.

    January 1, 2019 - Rouge brique très évolué. Encore de belle tenue malgré ses 40 ans bien sonnés. Équilibré et soyeux, avec des notes animales, mentholées et empireumatiques. Plus qu’agréable, bien qu’on imagine ses meilleures années derrière lui. Il a sûrement donné plus en termes de contenu il y a dix ou même vingt ans mais, aujourd’hui, c’est une expérience en soi. Mon seul regret est de ne pas en avoir une autre bouteille...

    October 11, 2018 - Flott 40 år gammel CDP med masse mørkerød frukt, nesten som ny verden-Pinot, soft munnfølelse men fortsatt ryggrad igjen. Mangler x-faktoren og den helt unike særegenheten til f.eks Rayas (dog aldri drukket så gammel Rayas), men var et veldig artig bekjentskap, og et veldig godt eksempel på at CDP ikke må drikkes ungt.

    October 5, 2018 - This was just fantastic. Very old school CdP. Surprisingly youthful presentation, though as the night wore on it started to show its age and get a little tired.

    PNP worked just great, but a gentle decant to get it off the sediment would work fine as well, though it doesn't need a ton of air to come to life.
