mature classic claret colour, sweet cedar mineral nose, some baked fruit. Mouthfilling on palate , swirled with a plethora of warm fruit cedar and earth. Balance but with St Estephe punch and structure.A really gorgeous bottle and even better than the last one.

Vegetal, tons of baking spices and some meat on a gorgeous nose.

Still very much alive with resolved tannins and acidity that kept everything in balance. Great finish, a real treat.

Blind I thought this was a Margaux because of the silky texture and elegance. Wonderful nose of asphalt, leather, smoke and dark fruit that leads to and perfectly balanced palate of coffee, dark fruit and nice chocolate notes. Creamy texture that is full and round in the mouth. Medium+ finish. A nice surprise.

Giving this score because its a well constructed wine, but after a 10 hour decant I was hoping it would have been a bit more pleasurable. Still austere, and I'm worrying this will ever come around to a style we like. Otherwise I have to expand my horizons

Decanted 2h before, young Bdx colours. Medium bodied and length, the normal Bx suspects; red fruits, cigar box, oak, elegance, elegance elegance. Lovely, classy Bdx-session but clearly in the tunnel. Good today, most probably great in 15 years.

Blending 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot produced a tannic, rich, powerful wine that expresses earth, forest floor, tobacco, blackberry, cassis and spice. Fresh, tannic and balanced, give this 10-15 years to soften, open and develop.

Opened another bottle 3 years after my last tasting and included a 6 hr splash decant.The wine shows no visual sign of age. Bottle fill into neck. There is no sediment in the bottle. Really benefited from decanting It smells of mushroom and cedar, with hints of eucalyptus. The body is medium/full with angular texture. Finish medium with medium acidity.

7/23/2014 - RGCM Gananda Likes this wine: 92 points

Currant and berries on the nose. Full bodied, but very smooth and balanced. Currant and berries upfront, finishing with tobacco and earth. Fruit is still quite bright and expressive. Good length on the finish and there’s plenty of structure here, but the tannins are well integrated. Not quite at peak yet as I think it will improve just a little bit more in complexity and integration.

Reasonable fruit but could have used more acid. Enjoyable but didn't blow me away. Tannins were not over the top so I'm not sure whether you gain more waiting longer

Last bottle of three and not in the very best condition with an almost completely soaked cork, sunk in about 5mm. However no other signs this bottle might be flawed with bottom neck fill and a healthy garnet with only slight browning. Poured into decanter and drank over 3h. Barnyard, cedar, leather and a relatively sinister dark fruit profile. Fairy classic St. Estephe I would say. Rather high acidity. Fine to medium tannins. Short to medium finish.
I start to get subtle oxidation notes as we approach the 3h mark. This might not have been a representative bottle, but I would not hold much longer

Vin grandiose encore une fois... long, complexe, parfumé, bien fondu et corsé, d'un impressionnant vibrato coloré rejaillissant sur tous les sens et entraînant la pensée... il emplit le palais avec sa soie, sa grâce, son élégance racée inimitable et son fruit sèveux persistant (mûre, cassis, framboise, cherry)... vraiment, pourquoi appelle-t-on cette boisson si délectable et ennivrante l'eau maudite ?
J'ai hâte de goûter le 90 et d'autres plus vieux millésimes de ce cru de longue haleine et de grande endurance... Dionysos savait ce qu'il faisait lorsqu'il donna le vin aux hommes.

Classic St. Estephe. Deep red color, some lead, some dust, darker cherry. Tannins seem a bit soft, but balanced, so unclear if awkward phase or just meant to drink on younger side. Enjoyable.
