A very seductive Bric del Fiasc. Extremely sexy with: Red fruit, hint of truffles, rubber and cherry stones. The wine has a incredible purity and seldom seen elegance. The taste doesn’t disappoint with precision, purity and harmonic length. Drinking so well at this stage – what a great wine. (96)

This wine was not very drinkable on day two as I forgot to seal the cork probably. My memories at this stage is a bit blurred, but I remember is as being as very nice with truffles, smoke and cherry stones. Not as seductive as my first visit, but still a great wine. (91-93)
