Still offering a strong sense of plummy fruit and toasty oak, where grainy tannins frame hints of minerality and a broad mid palate with nice texture; solid finish. Will flesh out given additional cellar time.

I suppose you need to friends of the style, in order to fully appreciate this "modern take" on BDX. Sweet and grainy tannins are present but well hissen under a blanket of dark, juicy, crunchy dark berries. Toasty French oak are present on the roasted finish. Impossible NOT to like, unless you prefer a necrophelia fruit profile.

2012 vintage; already showing great balance of dark berries, toasty oak, freshness and sweet tannins. Easy drinking yet characterful and rewarding. They 2025.

Such a pleasant surprise. Lots of life in the glass, but falls apart on day two. Slurp it all down now.

Pretty, with great purity of fruit, dominated by ripe plums and oriental spices, framed by toasty oak and fresh acidity. While not overtly complex, it's drinking beautifully at present.

Avec un petit salé lentilles home made et après une grande journée de ski, silky finish, complexe avec des notes de fruits rouge, bien balancé. Un joli moment.
