D+0h: not much deposit in the filter and the bottle, smells of blackberry and pencil lead, D+2,5h: quite dark for a wine of this age: dark as ink, on the rim 5 mm cherry red, smells of leather, smoke and possibly also of barnyard, medium body, in the mouth blackberry and earth notes, not too dry, nor too sweet, in the aftertaste blackberry, good length (30 seconds), blackberry lingers on the palate, nothing spectacular, but quite a good price quality ratio, will buy it again.
I double decanted an hour before drinking, this improves this wine considerably, stronger nose, fuller pallete. Nose is concentrated fruit, opulent Pauillac showing age by way of pencil lead and smoked oak. Palete is creamy soft, integrated fruit. Great value.
