'07: 89+
'06: 86+

I only had a taste but I enjoyed the '07 MUCH more than the '06. No proper notes but it seemed more dense and complex. I'll write more when I open a bottle and give it a proper go.

I still have an '06 in the cellar...curious how/if that has evolved.

Original review for the '06:

This is a good wine but a '92' seems generous.

Very restrained nose, and tight on the palate, quite dry and very minerally. Bright acidity and fine tannins.

The other bottle will benefit from a couple more cellar years.

A nice drink but I didn't find it lived up to the hype.
