Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has oxidized yellow apple, sweet pineapple, yellow apple flesh and faint oak influence.
Palate has pineapple, yellow melon, dried lemon peel, ripe papaya, naval orange (light) with light, sweet oak on the long finish.
Very surprised at this bottle, after having the lesser tier bottling (2007) on several occasions, I expected this to be highly oxidized and only pleasurable to anyone enjoying that particular style of Romorantin. This bottle was lively and fresh, still many years to go, future bottles can be 2022+ with little concern, when in proper storage. — 2 months ago
Awesome nose. Finally opening up. Dark cherry and berry fruit and wonderful granite. A sense of deepness and richness as well. Hulking aromas. Super impressive palate with huge juicy black fruits but also top notch finesse and elegance. So complex and mineral with palate staining fruit. So pure. Wow. Big ripe tannins melded with black fruits and so much granite. Finishes with minerals but also a kiss of black cherry and blackberry. Superb balance and refinement while also being a typical big MAV — 3 months ago

Drank 9\18\19. Nice with grilled fish.
Nose of lemon, honey, and just a touch of petrol, which I had not gotten from this in the past. White peach and lemon curd, with bright acidity in the clean palate. Citrus on the medium finish. As usual, I prefer the oaked version(d'argent), bit this was singing tonight. Very nice.
