Lovely location - again milling about the tables with breaks on the terrace for the view.
Smoke, lemon oil, very smooth and rich. Intense and nice length.

Quite muted. Not very intense and medium acidity.
Smoke and lemon on nose, faint wood. Quite big in the mouth. Good balance and length. Give this a couple of years.
Oak evident. Smoke and flint. Smooth and rich. A little buttery with not very high acidity.
Nice spicy nose but not very intense. Still tannic.
Lovely gamey smell - savoury, meaty. Smooth but little intensity on palate. Not very long.
Lots of forest smells. Quite intense and better on the palate. Spicy, rich and even a little unctuous. Good acid and length. Patty likes this.
Somewhat muted. OK on palate - some spice but not that intense. Bit flabby. Big contrast to the '08.
Meat and bacon, leather. Intense in mouth although soft with muted acidity, hidden tannins. A little bitter on the finish.
Intense nose - cherry. Rich and deep with good length. Good potential - time needed.
Decanted from magnum.Spicy cherry with little development yet. More interesting on the palate. Plenty of grippy tannins - one to watch.
Fragrant, flowers - elder-flower and rose. Delicate. Vanilla on palate. Lots of tannins still - needs time.
Rich nose but with some unusual chemical, medicinal notes. Lots of licorice, some leather, vanilla, raspberry.
Pale rim. Nicely developed nose; fruits of the forest with leather. Really nice in the mouth - good balance. Drinking well now.
Spicy cherry nose with leather. Good on palate. Slightly bitter on finish.
Rich nose, almost blackcurrant. Forest. Big palate with length. Still tannic but balanced.
Very intense and spicy. Meaty with leather. Some vanilla. Great on palate - nicely aged.
Lovely nose of red fruit and forest. Nice balance - rich with good acidity and tannins. Nice finish - quite spicy.
