    September 10, 2013 - Opened far too young, but evidences beautiful structure and a hefty finish. Notes of dark fruit, some chalk and fine tannins.

    May 21, 2011 - Voici un vin qui sous les 40$ saura être d’agréable compagnie. Sa robe limpide, éclatante et claire brille de ces reflets rubis bien caractéristiques du pinot noir. Le nez est fin, peu complexe mais présentant tout de même des arômes de cerise, de lys, de poivre et d’épices douces. En bouche son acidité fraîche présente des tanins moyens et quelque peu fondu, sur un corps pas trop agressif à l’alcool de 13%. En finale, sous son équilibre, pointe une note d’amertume qui le servira bien sur un repas léger. On peut espérer de ce vin une attente de 5 à 6 ans encore. (Ce vin fut décanté 3 heures.)

    February 3, 2011 - Sweet floral nectar nose with some nice minerality and a little dirty sock/cheese funk. Flavor is dry, tannins are firm, mouthfeel is puckery but not overly so. Long finish of nice concentrated dark fruits. Delicious.

    August 8, 2009 - Initial nose of cherries with a whiff of alcohol. Luckily the alcohol receded after about half an hour from opening. Much the same on the palate with some mouth drying astringency at first. This also receded after some time in the glass but never fully went away. Not a lot of complexity at this stage but smooth and quite tasty.
