Beautiful wine. Not too showy but exquisite balance and a long pleasant finish.

My first bottle of eight. It’s early but with seven more bottles, I took advantage of my curiosity. A stunning vintage and perhaps their best Alter Ego. Beautiful nose of fresh floral mid and dark red fruits with excellent silky mouthfeel. Two hour decant. I would wait another five years to check on my next bottle. Hedy’s 4th and main course, Lamb - Rack, Shank, Lavender, Cumin, Coriander and a tiny bit of Mint w/ Honey, Butter Beans, Baby Vegetable. Excellent preparation. The 09 Alter Ego did it justice. @PlateAndBottle

Sleek and endowed. Voluminous and pure nose, rich black fruit with subtle charcoal and pipe tobacco notes. Plush mouthfeel, with vivid minerality on the finish.

Disappointing. Hot and chewy, mineral/iron overpowering.

Another case of coravin failure. This was superb when first accessed but had lost a hell of a lot on the nose a few days later. So many of those wonderful floral, spicy notes were just completely gone or muted(!) #angryface

Really cool wine. Expressing dark fruits and soft tannins yet still showing that classic Bordeaux minerality and earth character. Tasted over 2 hours. Showed much more secondaries with time
