    November 2, 2021 - This is a lovely vintage with good ripeness and a nice lifted note from the Cab Franc. Elegant and refined but lacking complexity and interest on the finish. Again, for my palate, this does nothing to dissuade me from preferring to drink Sassicaia in its first 10 years of life.

    April 4, 2021 - Whenever I open a bottle of a legendary wine from my cellar for the first time, I feel apprehension lest it underperforms. This bottle, however, lived up fully to the estate's reputation and was the perfect accompaniment for Easter lamb. Colour was limpid with very little bricking at the rim. The nose was discreet but fine with notes of ripe berry fruit and hints of rose petal which I don't recall before in a left bank style Bordeaux blend. The palate was medium bodied, linear shaped and harmonious with quite some underlying roundness and silky texture and showed similar fruit and aromas as the nose. Acids were mouth-wateringly fresh but perfectly integrated except after a mouthful of sweetish spring vegetables which brought them forward. Tannins were riper and more resolved than with most Bordeaux of the same vintage and supported well the decently long finish. A lovely elegant bottle. Excellent.

    March 2, 2021 - still young, bright fruits, great length, complex. Would put many a Bordeaux of the same vintage to shame. Great stuff!!

    December 22, 2020 - Juste parfait, acidité parfaite, encore assez d’odeur et de goût de fruits...quand le vin se boit simplement et coule bien comme ça, on est très proche de la perfection. Je crois qu’il pourrait encore être conservé 2-4 ans pour les amateurs de notes et goûts tertiaire qui n’était pas encore vraiment commencés. Ouvrir un bon deux heures avant ( pas nécessaire de décanté ), il en a besoin pour s’ouvrir et vous montrer toutes ses qualités.

    Enjoy this magnificent wine !!

    December 1, 2020 - This was not showing well, and had high acid, a bit thinner mouthfeel, old musty earth tones (but not faulty), Bordeaux underbrush, forest floor, wet earth, rotting log. Just paled in comparison to the others and just seemed a bit lacking to me. Guessed Bordeaux blend Super-T. Not sure why this one 3rd place over all. DD at Cotzen's.
