    February 19, 2017 - Distinctive merlot fruit with hints of cab franc--cherries, tobacco, graphite, and a little cayenne. Velvet texture with some structure and a long delightful finish. This is a really nice Pomerol in it's prime.

    December 28, 2016 - Mid garnet, browning to edge. Definitely mature. Great plum and red berry fruits. Some warm spices. Cedar wood. Slight smokiness. Epitome of velvety tannins. Decent acidity. Medium length. lovely balance.

    December 26, 2015 - A private dinner at a friend's (Waver, Ouder-Amstel, NL): Fully mature, ripe and elegant, wonderful crushed red Merlot fruit, harmonious, mature and almost resolved tannins, refreshing acidity, delicious hint of spice, peppery Cabernet Franc, medium weight, clean flavours, lovely length. Excellent Pomerol.

    December 12, 2014 - a little bit over the edge but still very very pleasant and enjoying. Garnet color witnessing the vintage, still intense hints of oaked bordeaux at the nose, powerful ripe red fruit at the palate. Smoothed acidity and round faded tannins. Top QPR at 25 eur. 91+
