Alright! Seems this is finally opening up! Quite surprising given previous experiences. This was smooth, balanced and with a decent finish straight on the PnP. Typical... now that I have drunk must of my bottles...
J'aime pas trop le nez, trop boisé. C'est moderne. Par contre la bouche est très belle, voluptueuse, précise et savoureuse, avec quelque chose d'éclatant. Fort bon dans le style, à revoir dans quelques années pour voir si le bois s'intègre davantage. 90-91 pts
Deep dark center, red rim with some signs of age. Sweet cassis and raspberries, a little floral, wine gums (in a good way), black cherry yoghurt, hint of sandalwood. Smooth, blackcurrant and raspberries, modest tannin and acidity, oak is present but not overwhelming, touch of greenness, good length. Better and more classically constructed than expected (this note was from a day after opening). Drinking well now, but will last a few more years with no problem.

(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.
