    April 6, 2016 - Monthly Tasting Group EEE #049; Bordeaux: Pessac-Léognan. (@ My place): Beautiful bouquet with dark forest fruits, vanilla, toast, graphite and meaty flavors. On the palate red and dark forest fruits, some licorice, vanilla, beautiful acidity and round tannin. Maturity stage now, but no hurry at all. This will still be lovely around 2018+.

    March 12, 2016 - Same as my previous note. Love this classic Pessac Leognan. Just bought 2 cases: 12 of 2009 and 12 of 2010.... Curious how they compare...

    (Chateau Latour-Martillac Pessac-Léognan) There are lots of ripe fruits on the rather forward, open nose of this wine, perfumed in character, with a layer of oak. But the palate disappoints; it has a hollow centre, and lacks texture. Thin and perhaps over-extracted as there is an incongruous wall of tannin to match. A great shame, as the nose held some promise.
