    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.

    November 27, 2016 - Big tannins still. Great nose. Tons of green pepper. Needs long decant. Well age another 10++ years.

    October 30, 2016 - from cool cellars this wine needs definitely more time, even in halves, my last of these cooler ones was still opaque, deep purple, smelled and tasted too young, did not open during a couple of days of decanting, while the first half bottle came from a store where the bottles had 5 degrees C warmer - that one was great.

    September 6, 2016 - dark red-purple
    requires 1-2 hours of decanting
    excellent Margaux style nose with funk, damp earth, pencil lead, perfumed, floral, cassis, blueberry, raspberry, and leather. The palate is probably even better than the stellar nose; funky, earth, black and blue fruits, pencil lead, charcoal, leather, focused, integrated and balanced.

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.
