    June 11, 2016 - Nigel's 40th Birthday celebrations (Cornwall): Opened for an hour and decanted for several before serving.

    Clear appearance, medium intensity, light ruby in colour. Clean, pronounced nose showing some maturity. Some acidity, superb, fine tannins, medium body. Flavour was not as pronounced as the nose initially led you to believe it would be. Medium-plus length.

    Nose of black fruits and violets. Silky smooth in the mouth. Lovely drinking now but last couple of drops still drinkable the following day.

    January 1, 2016 - Followed an 88 Latour. It was very pleasant but did not blow us away. As others have said, i think it is as good as it is going to be so one to drink in the next few years.

    October 25, 2015 - Be patient when you open, takes 2+ hours to show its true flavor. Not bad for an off year. Would not sit on it, I doubt it will improve.

    (Chateau Margaux Margaux) A deep and glossy hue on inspection. Unsurprisingly there is much in common with the 2000 Pavillon on the nose here; this young wine also shows lots of toffee-toast-oak character, with a burnt sugar, marshmallowy feel, over some pure black fruits beneath. Nicely restrained texture on entry though, the palate showing very good definition and a fine structure with a gentle coating of fruit. It opens up through the midpalate, showing more warmth and texture, but never losing that fine, grippy structure. Good freshness. This should be fine, but needs much time a decade as a bare minimum.
