  • Unlike in March of '13, I found this not ready - even after a 3 hour decant. the fruit and nose were muted and it came across as a decent but undistinguidhed bordeaux. I did not detect TCA but must admit I am not particularly sensitive…so either a bottle that is still 'dumb' or mild TCA

  • Beautiful nose black and red fruits, graphite and minerals. Beautiful medium bodied fleshy structure. Great delineation, balance and fine tannins. Relatively open - decant for an hour.

  • Judgement of Chicago (Nomi): Tasted blind. Nose was muted, not giving anything at all. The palate was also closed, seemed much more old world, but not giving much fruit. Completely closed and disappointing. The group agreed this was the worst of the reds.

  • Home-cooked dinner at Jess's place.
    Appearance is clear, deep intensity, garnet colour. Legs.
    Nose is bretty (I like!) initially, pronounced intensity, with aromas of horse/animale, barnyard, earthiness. The brettiness blew off after 2 hours, revealing aromas of earth, chocolate, blackcurrant, and black cherry. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, fine silky medium tannins, medium+ body. Initially very tight after 1 hour in the decanter, the palate only opened up after 2 hours. I was beating myself up for drinking too fast at the start as I was tasting this blind at first!
    Medium flavor intensity, with flavours of earth, dark chocolate, graphite, sweet blackcurrant, black cherry. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Can drink now with long decant more than 2 hours. Will improve with further ageing, maybe another 7 years till 2021. 2026 may be a stretch.

    (Mouton) The next wine was more two-dimensional with more vanilla and oak to the nose with a slight char and toast. The wine was not singing on this day
