  • Decanted for 1hr and drank over the following hour. Consistent with previous notes. Very classic left bank bordeaux. Well balanced with fine tannins. Prominent notes of cassis and cedar. Medium minus finish. In my opinion this is pretty much at its peak and will not improve significantly from here but can hold at this level for 5yrs+ so no hurry.

  • Lush dark fruits still primary; violets; youthful.

  • 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.

    (Château Léoville Barton) Very dark red violet color; focused, elegant, cherry, cassis and well integrated oak nose; tight yet on palate, but very good, well structured, cassis palate; medium finish
