Light in fruit and weight, but quite charming, with its freshness in the red berries. There is a definite note of green pepper and herbs that some tasters will like more than others. The finish was soft and easy to like. This is not a wine for further aging.
A pointe. Perfectly integrated but not tired, this attractive middleweight shows dark brambly fruit, some earthy secondary characteristics, and a hint of graphite. Expressive both on the nose and the palate, and the texture is silky smooth. Not super concentrated but the balance is impeccable and time has given this some complexity. Absolutely lovely.
From Nursel Köran's cellar. A charming tone of garnet. Evolved nose featuring a core of dried berries running alongside wet autumn leaves, barnyard scents and tea leaves all followed by blood and leather. Rather earthy on the palate. Rich and layered yet remains elegant and silky. Lively with a long, persistent aftertaste.
colour still fresh, no hint of browning. Nose subtle and restrained , some tobacco and fruit. Palate elegant balanced , quite firm with medium finish. Very good food wine . A good wine for the vintage.

(Chateau Pichon-Lalande Pauillac) This has much more colour than the last wine. A lovely nose - pencil lead, cedar and spice-edged black fruits. Very dry on the palate, very savoury, a wonderful foil for the food. Aromatic. Full, elegant rather than opulent or creamy, with integrated tannins. Very classic.
