    January 23, 2015 - Aware now of the fact that the 2004 vintage is on the bitter/acidic end of the spectrum, I have experimented with different ways of aerating this wine. I got it now! First decant for an hour and clean out the bottle, poor it back in and let it slow-ox for a few further hours (I did six hors this time). Then pump out the air (vaccupump). 12 hours later I had a a wonderful wine! No bitterness, terrific balance, very fresh and the underlying fruit asserts itself. The fine tannins are sweet and the finish is surprisingly long! The QPR when treated this way is great, if you PnP you will feel cheated!

    January 4, 2015 - Developed nose of truffle, tobacco, cigar box, licorice and blackberry get you going. On the palate, the wine is soft, polished, sweet and fresh, ending with fresh sweet, earthy black cherries. You can truly enjoy this wine today.

    December 18, 2014 - Beautiful bouquet with dark berry fruits, smoke, and cinnamon. Refined and complex. On the palate red and dark forest fruits, some chocolate, and firm acidity. The wine is ready now and will stay on this level until at least 2019. 91-92

    December 13, 2014 - Straight out of the bottle this had a lovely nose dominated by currants and cassis and with hints of cedar wood, but in the mouth it was disjointed and bitter. After slow-oxing for 20 hours it has come together nicely though, good balance and length now, maybe a little muted and perhaps still on the acidic side o things. Some tannins still present but I'm not sure it will evolve much. In any case, this is a decent QPR

    November 29, 2014 - Drinking great with a two-hour decant, only a trace of the 2004 bitterness. Probably should finish these up over the next five years.

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry Margaux) Very closed down. Fine texture and weight on the palate though, with well knit, supple, velutinous tannins. Lots of texture and presence here, with firm acidity. The character is difficult to assess in such a closed state, but this will be wonderful after a at least a decade in the cellar.
