Extremely forward nose of ripe red and black fruit, a zillion different spices and a cool, airy floral note. Yet with all this going on, you still felt the wine was holding back a bit. This sense of exuberance combined with restraint carried through to the palate which was also full of spice, forward fruit, a rhubarb note and clear, but satisfying structure. This is awesome today and it will only gain complexity. This is much more sophisticated than the Clos du Chateau tasted last night, but has the same level of excitement, just with more complexity and depth. The finish lasts forever.

Ripe and very sweet on the nose. Black fruit, almost prune like. Pure and finessed on the palate, but again, just a bit too sweet. Seemed more aged in appearance than I would have thought.

Fresh and pure nose of strawberries, raspberries, mushrooms and a interesting rubber note. Sweet, ripe and nicely structured on the palate. This is good now and will last a long time. Medium++ finish

Serious wood spice attacks your nose with reinforcements of red and black fruit. This carries through to the palate with bright and exuberant fruit. Racy and sexy as expected, but this did not have the mid palate depth that they 2007 did which strikes me as odd considering the vintages. Medium++ finish that has you thinking about this wine the next day.

    8/3/2014 9:20:00 AM - Saved a glass and tried it 3 days later. This filled out nicely and the shallowness in the midpalate was completely gone. I really enjoyed this.

Two HDH Dinners (Ada St. and Bistronomic): This was the CSJ Cuvee Centenaire. A 1/2 barrel production. Basically the CSJ on steroids. Extremely dense and intense red and black fruit, loads of spice, bit of mineral and outstanding grip. This is big, but overdone. Long finish.

A real treat to try something this old with a storied past--and timely these days. Fig, dried apple, brandy, burnt honey, creme brûlée on the nose and palate. Rich, round, full and creamy in the mouth. Not heavy, but viscous. Long, strong finish. Shows its age at the end. I'd annex Crimea just for this...

I have had this wine a few times and I was certainly over enthusiastic with my first note. That said, this is a sleeper wine that is perfectly mature, well integrated with great notes of mature red and black fruit, cedar, earth and a leather note. Great harmony and round texture. Medium depth and finish.

    4/17/2014 7:50:00 PM - Definitely worth a try. I bought two cases from the HDH Clarence Day auction. Bottles were in good condition with fills at base neck/top shoulder. All bottles have been great right away and held for 2+ hours. A couple had some funk at the beginning which blew off. Let me know if you try one!

Easy. Straightforward with sulphur, pear, just the right amount of oak. Lighter and sleek in the mouth with a lingering finish. Enjoyable.

Decanted and drank over 5 hours. Deep deep dark purple color. My teeth looked I had drank a Shiraz. Dark nose of black fruit, red fruit, leather, tobacco, wet stones, some earth but mostly primary fruit. The palate matched with coffee, cocoa and more dark fruit. This is thick and concentrated, very modern. Dense with the alcohol and tannin present, but the fruit matches. A long finish with dark fruit and tannin lingering for over a minute. Impressive for sure.

Decanted and drank over 6 hours. No doubt I am influenced by the hype surrounding this wine. I actually tasted this from barrel with Alfred Tesseron, who was just so charming. At the time I liked the wine, but wouldn't have put it in my top 10 of the trip. Anyway, the nose is great with deep dark fruit, crushed stone, asphalt, dark chocolate and herbs. The palate matches and even with plenty of air is still dense and tight with a core of dark fruit. The balance and texture are wonderful as this just glides across your tongue. The tannin is evident on the finish and every so often you get a little bit of heat on the nose. All that said it will clearly age and I'm looking forward to drinking the rest of the case.

    12/11/2012 7:33:00 PM - I actually had a glass left and tried this on day 2. It was outstanding. Full and round in the mouth, tannin had softened and the fruit was ripe and pure. A great wine.
