Tasted on its own, with some steak, and if I liked this kind of wine, I could probably see the virtue of it. But tasted alongside 08 Ducru-Beau. it was a bit ridiculous. Simple, overwhelmingly oaky, sugary, superficial. Two thumbs down from the whole table.
Excellent! Tobacco, leather, currant and dark fruits. Perfect color. Decanted for about an hour, this wine was perfectly balanced, fruit and tannins well integrated. At peak, but will likely remain there for several more years. A true gem.
Some glycerin on the nose along with cassis. This is a very integrated effort. Great sweetness and acidity mixed with very smooth tannins. This wine is plush with a great vanilla and current taste profile. The finish is long and lush. A fantastic effort.....
