November 8, 2014 - Took awhile to open up, but after an hour or so, it was a very good wine. Good fruit; excellent bordeaux style.

An excellent wine.

September 14, 2014 - Velvety. Very enjoyable. Blackberry and black currant. Will probably be very nice for another 2-3 years. Was very nice with beef fillet.

August 30, 2014 - Not that I have a ton of experience with BdX, but I would not have picked this out as a Right Bank bottle. Brighter than most, with a nice bit of sweetness / florals on the nose, along with a very slight hint of green pepper that adds complexity. On the palate, medium to medium heavy with an uplifting acidity that hasn't entirely integrated, particularly on the finish, which comes across with a hint of sharpness. A bottle like this one, while drinking well now, may well improve with another few years for those who prefer their Bordeaux fully matured and integrated. A very good pairing with a mixed plate of artisanal cheeses.
July 22, 2014 - rough and starting to come apart.

(Chateau Faugères St Emilion) A very open and expressive nose here, quite exotic, and rich with spiced, plummy fruit. It has a very attractive palate also, soft at the entry and then showing more structure towards the end. Good acidity, overall this has an appealing composition. A lot of substance here. This needs time, between two and five years at least.
