    July 2, 2016 - Light ruby color. Vegetable nose. Mild tannins, medium bodied, soft and supple with old world charm. Oak and Casis. Still has some life, but drink up.

    December 21, 2015 - Light to medium bodied, great perfume, a drier style, seamed higher in alcohol. I was very impressed with this wine. A great match with the prime rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding, tomato stuffed with broccoli mousse and roasted potatoes.

    November 26, 2015 - The cork was loose. As soon as I applied the end of the cork screw to it, it started to push down. I ultimately wasn't able to do much more than push it into the bottle. But, here's the good news - the wine was excellent. It had all the elements of a mature, nicely textured Bordeaux. The nose was lead pencil and tobacco, and it followed along with nice blackberry and cassis, with near perfect integration and balance, and a beautiful finish that included hints of coffee.

    April 10, 2014 - Very good. Cork completely intact, neck fill. No indication of poor storage. Opened nicely over 15 minutes, lasted approx. 1 hour. 30 minutes into the glass, a beautiful perfume of espresso. Smooth, seductive. Tremendous match with Manchego.

    (Chateau Saint-Pierre St Julien) Not quite an opaque wine, but certainly deeply coloured. A surprise on the nose, which offers aromas of coffee and mocha alongside the mature fruit. A metallic edge. Full, tannic, austere palate. Lovely extract and a good texture. A better showing than my last tasting four years ago.

    (Chateau Saint-Pierre St Julien) A mahogany, tawny appearance. A closed nose, but with good fruit on the palate. Obviously a good wine, but not showing as well as the others tonight.
