October 26, 2013 - From memory, needed some time to open up and the tannins remained firm throughout the evening. Medium body and acidity with dark red fruit that stayed wound pretty tight. I think this will benefit from another couple of years of aging, which is consistent with most of my other recent 04 Bordeaux experiences.

May 3, 2013 - Nice dark fruit, oak, and forest floor on the nose. Dark classic and percise Bordeaux fruit with subtle licorice and oak notes on the palate. Still quite young with drying tannins on the finish. A pleasantly austere wine profile that I believe will evolve nicely still.
April 12, 2013 - Probably not a good tasting note as I have a nasty cold.
Jill says this is terrific. Tasted nice, very smooth, but when tasted without food showed a touch of bitterness on the finish.

March 6, 2013 - Perfectly aged 2004. Medium garnet in color with nose of black cherry and a sublime nose of forest floor. Medium minus acidity with medium body and length. Tannins were medium and well integrated. Drink up!

(Chateau Faugères St Emilion) Again this is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from vines that average 35 years of age. It spends 14 months in a mix of 50% used oak and 50% new. Lovely, pure, deep fruit on the nose, with a dark, roasted, meaty style. This is very attractive. It has texture and a fresh and admirable depth. The tannins are ripe and well balanced and overall this is very nicely composed. It is stylish, concentrated, and it has a dense finish. This has great potential.
