  • Open two hours before lunch. There was any decanting .
    Without being grandiose , another St. Julien's textbook wine. Classic claret. Totally agree with most of my colleagues CellarTracker notes.
    Purple with brown trim. Beefy nose with pencil, violet and graphite.
    In shorter than you could expect, still tasty and elegant mouth.
    Surprisingly, and despite my initial reluctance, paired very well to a chicken breast in coconut milk sauce with curry and spices.
    Next bottle on 2019 or so.

    Abierta dos horas antes de la comida. Sin decantar.
    Sin ser grandiosa, una St. Julien de manual. Un clarete clásico. Totalmente de acuerdo con la mayoría de las notas de mis colegas en Cellartracker.
    De color púrpura con ribetes marrones. Nariz cárnica con notas de lápiz, violetas y grafito.
    En boca más corta de lo que podías esperar y aún así sabrosa y elegante.
    Sorprendentemente, y pese a mis reticencias iniciales, maridó muy bien a una pechuga de pollo en salsa de leche de coco con curry y especias.
    La siguiente botella en el 2019 o así.

  • Just a ordinary tasting (Chris Home): Nose: A LOT of violets mixed with some blackberry and a posh note from the oak. Still very youthful.
    Palate: Tight tannins, medium+ acidity which keeps the high extract in a good balance. Medium body. Nice wine although BDX is not my favorite region.

  • Wounderfully elegant nose. Violets all over the place. Cunning and lean structure. Certainly still a bit hard and pencil'ish, however to me already very enjoyable. I prefer a more sincere and aristo-style.Glad for having one more bottle.

  • Deep ruby/garnet core, pale ruby rim. Youthful nose, blackcurrant, vanilla, touch of cream, attractive mineral edge. Medium/full bodied, blackcurrant again but some red fruit here too, cedar, touch of savour, tannins are very fine but still a touch firm, this shows good depth, some creamy breadth, and an attractive stony minerality under the ripe fruit, with a long finish. Excellent, just about approachable but will certainly benefit from a few more years.
