November 16, 2015 - This was decanted for 4 hours and was still highly tannic. I won't open any more of these for 5 years. The 2004 we also drank showed wonderfully.

September 27, 2015 - Decanted for 30 minutes and served with lamb chops. Dark black color. Dark fruits / tobacco / black currants on nose. On palate, blackberry, dried tobacco, black cherry. Was good over 3 separate nights. I really enjoy this wine and it's been consistent since the '05 vintage for me. 91+ Would buy again.1 person found this helpful Comment

August 16, 2015 - Belle couleur grenat profond, ocelle orangée, larmes fréquentes et moyennes.
Nez fumé, avec fruit légèrement en retrait (fruits rouges : cerises). Beaux arômes d'épices et de cacao.
Bouche épicés répétant le nez avec des tanins un peu serrés et une pointe d'acidité.
Finale moyenne sur les épices.
Un Fronsac bu trop jeune, qui devrait malgré tout s'améliorer avec le temps.

July 12, 2015 - Dark, rich, almost thick...opens up with dark prunes giving way to sweet tobacco with coffee accents. Nice finish. Only negative (a small one) is this might have been a little too much "Napa-ish" but that likely due to very warm vintage producing 14.5% Alc. Liked a lot, but actually preferred 2011 (see 2011 reviews).

July 1, 2015 - Decanted for an hour. Mild nose, nice flavor with bright tannins. Tried the remaining half of the bottle on day 2 (refrigerated). Decanted for an hour. Still pretty had pretty sharp tannins.
