May 25, 2016 - Tasting Bordeaux 13-12-11-10 in Hong Kong (Visiting Vinexpo 2016, I finally tasted Bordeaux 2013s from bottle, plus earlier vintages): One of the more structured 2013s but the tannins are bit hard here. It has a Pauillac punch, rather surprising for the vintage, but the overall impression of austerity perturbs. Give it time in the cellar and cross your fingers.
April 2, 2016 - Very tannic for the vintage, and may be a bit forced. The fruit, true to vintage, is quite simple. There's some power behind it, and it does taste like Lynch-Bages and may make a decent wine in a few years, but it's not one of the success stories of '13 imo.

March 11, 2016 - Heart's Delight Tasting (Sofitel - Washington, DC): Deep and exotic on the nose with black and red currants and cherries, rich earth and sweet spice. Firm but accessible tannins, lots of brightness with tart red and black currants. Notes of violets, graphite, sweet spice, lovely depth and complexity. Long and smooth, with a freshness that keeps the wine vibrant despite its cellar-worthy potential.

February 10, 2016 - With a nose of fresh cassis, thyme, cedar wood and earthy scents, this medium bodied wine is forward, with a tangy, bright, spicy, red plum and cassis note in the finish.1 person found this helpful Comment

January 31, 2016 - Wanted to like it. Expected to. And it wasn't bad, just....the nose was too medicinal and the palate was too plasticky.
