Color: dark ruby. Nose: some brett, horse leather, black cherries and blackberries. Taste: follows the nose, with a slight green note. A bit jammy. The tannins are almost fully resolved. Medium bodies, the finish was a bit short. At the second day quite sweet cherry-liquor in the nose, nice black fruit and smoke in the taste. Not jammy anymore. Attractive St. Estephe. To drink within the next two, three years, I guess. First day (87-)88 second 88(-89).
Drank by the glass at CUT. Actually quite enjoyed this despite the oak influence being on the heavy side. Tannins were firm but not harsh. Quite voluptuous dark fruit with a creamy texture. Finish was on the shorter side but frankly, this is a very "correct" bordeaux. Not particularly inspiring but no complaints from me! Can probably hold for at least 5 more years.
Dark ruby colour. Big nose of dust, earth, cedar wood, spices, cocoa and licorice, but the palate was quite disappointing. The fruitiness was weak and dominated by oak influence. Young bitter spicy tannin. Over acidic. Medium body. I only liked its blackberry and cherry aftertaste. Still too young to drink but don't think that it will improve much by aging.
