    April 22, 2019 - I’ve had this in the cellar a long time and to be truthful it was a bit past its best. Browning rim and a crumbly cork. Nose has more gravy than fruit at first. After a couple of houses in the decanter the fruit is more to the fore and this shows like a mature Pauillac with plenty of cedar and cassis. After three hours it starts to become more gravy-like. More like a 40:year old wine than one at 30. Brobably a condition issue rather than the wine itself.

    February 1, 2019 - Decanted an hour before dinner. Still quite young appearance, quite tight at start, requires more air to open. Classical, elegant Médoc, nose with black currant, leather and forest floor, good freshness and long finish. Very good now but no hurry to drink as long the cork is fine (92-93).

    September 29, 2018 - classic rather light Claret; great pleasure now

    May 25, 2018 - 16th of 24, decanted 40 minutes, perfect cork and level, now properly mature, lightening rim, tertiary flavours overlaying the cassis core, a little less drive to the fruit, compensated by developing complexity and grace, not a Lafite, but yardstick claret nevertheless, no rush. F+ (18).

    December 31, 2017 - High marks, smooth, nice color and silky nose. Excellent wine to ring in the New Year 2018!
