    April 10, 2017 - Cellared since release, perfect cork and fill. Dark red, minimal lightening at rim. Forward, expressive nose of cassis, leather, earth. Medium body, ripe red fruits and some complexity on the palate, well balanced, integrated tannins, medium finish. Has reached its plateau and will likely remain there for at least a decade. Room for some fruit/complexity trade off in the future, a positive if you like that. Excellent to outstanding.

    February 12, 2017 - Drinking beautifully. Dinner with friends at a 1 star Michelin in London. Opposite a Figeac 2001. Large format magnum. Opened a case of 6 and brought one to the restaurant. decanted about an hour. Next time will do more.
    Pretty wine. Silky and mouthy at the same time. Super elegant. Beautiful nose. I love this region for the bouquet alone. Must be the cabernet which gives our such great structure and tannin yet this wonderful blend of floral notes too. They say it could be one of the best PL ever in 30 - 40 years according to Parker.
    Relatively inexpensive to buy many years ago but the year is undoubtedly great. Punches above is weight for price. So happy this is in magnums. Will continue to age beautifully but in danger of rapid consumption in my house

    February 11, 2017 - Winebar [Various Reds & a Sancere] for 2/10/17 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): N: Complex; Vanilla atop a melange that's tough to parse: pyrazines, earth, cherries, the earth moving forward with air/warmth? More to give, although there was also a lack of stamina?!?

    P: Med, poss LM, body; Almost rndish entry with almost swtish frt on the front. VERY nicely balanced, seamless, & with a LONG (albeit very slightly faint) finish. An ELEGANT style drinking VERY nicely right now -- & should hold for 4 or 5 more, I'd guess. 93 pts Suckling, 91 ea WE & WE, 90 Jeff Leve, 87 Jean-Marc Quarin, and 17/20 La Revue du Vin de France

    January 5, 2017 - quality & mature wines tasting event (my home): dark opaque red-purple-brown
    seducing dark ripe fruits nose with heavy leather notes and sous-bois hints
    soft integrated firm tannins, full bodied, well balanced and harmonised, soft structured, basic complexity, tobacco, mint-eucalyptus, soft cigar-box finish, medium aftertaste.
    requires decanting of 1-2 hours.

    24 hours later: still very enjoyable and fully aerated

    January 2, 2017 - Lovely BDX, despite the slightly modern stylings (oak spice was still a bit too prominent for my liking), but lovely floral, cigar, and leathery tones and touch of green herbs for freshness. Has plenty of backbone for more aging, and I'd let it rest to give the oak more time to integrate.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Prieure-Lichine) A great showing for this wine and I have not really loved this stuff in the past. Violets, minerals, chocolate, exotic spices . . . maybe clove? Deep nose . . not high-toned but subtly penetrating. Peppery palate with a swath of dense dark berried fruit. Long and grippy but the fruit is there till the end. Fantastic.
