    July 14, 2020 - Still in good shape, but on the decline.
    Similar notes on the first day to my last bottle. Again surprisingly robust for the price tag and the vintage. A 90-91 score.
    Lacking fruit on day two: a 89 score.

    Drink up in the next 3-5 years.

    November 11, 2019 - day 1, pop and pour. Interesting. At PnP, it seems well on its way down, with almost no fruit, lots of tertiary notes and somewhat fusty and tired. Over a couple hours, it starts to show some fruit, first faded dark fruit, then a bit brighter over more time in the glass. There's oak/vanillin, coffee, and a weird medicinal band-aid/cough syrup note that doesn't really go away. A bit low on acid and soft round tannins. Probably was better 5 years ago. 86

    Day 3, after stoppering and sitting in the fridge. Well, the band-aid is gone, and there’s a bit more red fruit in the glass, along with a more prominent sweet oak. 87

    July 2, 2019 - Still a bold wine, but very enjoyable now. Fullbodied, nice dark fruit and a pretty decent finish. Just a bit to one-dimensional to compete with more acclaimed chateaux. Excellent QPR.
    Drink or hold until 2023-2025.

    June 8, 2019 - Note: I use a scale on which 85 represents a very good wine.

    For whatever reasons, not as pleasing as the bottle I had two years ago. Still a very nice bottle, but the fruit was not nearly as pronounced as it was before.

    Bottle variation, time, whatever.

    November 15, 2017 - Yikes! This is a very nice wine. Very slow aging from my cold cellar but still developing some nice secondary notes. Dark purple in the glass with almost no bricking at this stage. Feral and pungent nose with a dark core of black raspberry, coffee and olive fruit. Quite intense and well balanced on the finish. Has at least another 20 years to go.
