    March 1, 2017 - Have enjoyed this wine on multiple occasions and have consistently rated it 87-89. As with the last tasting a year ago, cassis, wood and touch of spice in the nose and initial flavors, along with moderate, but not drying tannins (not bitter). I think the wine is at or near its peak, but should hold for several years.

    October 18, 2016 - Pleasant, tannins resolved, good value for the price I paid at Costco but not a wine to make a fuss about

    April 9, 2016 - 4/9/2016 rated 89 points: Offered at tasting today at Dorothy Lane Market in Springboro, OH, sold for $35/750 ml. Interesting to compare it with another second wine, the Reserve d'Angludet 2009, a Margaux. served abpit 2 weelks before at the same venue at the same price. Of course this really isn't a second wine, but a wine made by some of the owners of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but not a classed growth.

    Has good purple foam but has already faded away from the rim by about 5 mm. This has a fairly textbook St.-Julien nose of tobacco, salt pork, and thyme, seguing into cherries and tar. Entry is solid but a bit light in the mdi-palate, nice and juicy with moderate tannins. Perhaps just a bit too stylish but a good food Bordeaux for all that, one that would be a good choice in a restaurant if the tariff was not too steep. drink now-2020+
