Drank over two days and the wine improves considerably. Day two: The bouquet is a bit dusty with cassis, plum and earthy flavors. On the palate cassis, some sweet spices a touch of bell pepper, some chocolate, good acidity and pleasant tannin. The wine is mature now and offers really pleasant drinking after some air time. Will definitely still be ok in 2017.

(Chateau Lilian Ladouys St Estèphe) There is red cherry fruit here, which is subtle, and tinged with smoke. The palate is softly composed, but underneath there is a firm, slightly burnt character and grip which carries through to the finish. There is not a lot of character to discuss here.
