Vintage 2009 / My favorite ‘petit’ #bordeaux always reliable and comforting. Very true to type. Cherries and cassis in smell. Supple taste. From magnum. Not ready yet but developing nicely. Partnered with goose rillettes.

Vintage 2009 - 10% malbec 45% cabernet franc 45% merlot after an austere period now opening again, nice red fruit, very vibrant wine

Vintage 2005 - still evolving, on it's way to beautiful tertiary tones of a developed wine. I love this reliable Côtes de Bourg. Dutch bottling Berger Roermond.

Vintage 2005 - Dutch bottling by Wim Berger Ruremonde. Still too young, it's a great year but it takes time before Gros Moulin reveals its qualities. Cherries in the smell, burned sugar. Still tannic after all those years... Lovely 'petit' Bordeaux, one of my favorites

Vintage 2009 - good smell but is becoming a bit austere in taste now. It's a funny thing: wine has a life with different expressions in its youth, midlife and when it becomes more mature.
