    September 7, 2014 - Very elegant and charming. Delicate floral nose with some cassis and notes of leather. Great structure and potential. Drinks very well now, but will evolve for up to a decade more. Great wine.

    August 17, 2014 - my third 1/2 bottle, while the first was much more mature, second over a year ago/and third now are from a different source and still very closed, almost like different vintages. I had this bottle finally decanted overnight, but it didn't help much, I won't touch this the next 3 years at least. 89p for this now, 93p I gave the first bottle hopefully again in about 3-5 years.

    July 9, 2014 - It's Margaux week. This is classically structured on the lighter side and not a typical 2000. Anti Bob wine.

    July 5, 2014 - Elegant Margaux. Perfect drinking age. Medium body, with a beautiful bouquet of dried fruit, cherries and herbs into a long, complex finish.

    April 13, 2014 - Second Sunday Group: 2000 Bordeaux (R&D's): Dark color. Aromas of red fruit, though a bit tight at first, becoming perfumed and florally in the glass. Black fruits and florals with an herbal, slightly earthy undertone. Full-bodied with some tannin to shed yet, but what tannins are there are certainly approachable and fine-grained. Flavors of plum, blackberry, licorice and red fruit with a pleasant herbal streak. 91-93 pts.

    My #2, Domino's #6
    Group #4, 51 pts

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.
