Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 84.6 points

  • Purple-blue in the glass. Massive, extracted/monolithic and uninteresting to me on the nose or palate at this point in its life and I didn't see anything here I'd want to wait on. It's apparently 10% tannat and 90% malbec but tastes like the other way around.

  • Suitably dark-hued and no sign of any age at the rim (this a half bottle)

    Quite richly fruited on the nose (indeed even picking up the glass from a foot away released a strong scent). Somewhat remininiscent of a good Bdx blend on the nose, with a touch of coffee hinting at minor oak influence. On swirling more leathery/gamy aromas emerge.

    On the palate, there's good depth of dark fruit, but it's certainly not overblown. Grippy tannins keep it tight and the acidity seems more supportive than a bottle tasted a couple of years ago.

    This should keep very nicely - perhaps take another look in 3 years and I could see it easily lasting another decade.

  • Good for 02 and pretty good irrespective of that. Has the Cahors tendency for big tannins.
