1 Stunde dekantiert. Zu Hecht, Spargeln und Gratin getrunken. Kräftiger, cremiger, harmonischer gereifter weisser Leognan. Spezieller, komplexer Weisswein. Unbedingt mindestens 1h dekantieren und nicht zu kalt trinken! 94/100
1 hours decanted. Drunk too pike, asparagus and gratin. Strong, creamy, harmonious ripened white Leognan. More specifically, complex white wine. Be sure to decant at least 1 hour and not too cold drink! 94/100
1925 and some other oldies: Very round, properly mature, oaky-herbal with a slight vanilla note and small yellow plums, mineral nose. Also some nuts and developping milk caramel as it warms up. Precise, steely taste, ginger and pepper note, some herbal-menthol notes as well. Even later it develops pharmacy and medicine bouquet. Classy as always.
°°° Bordeaux 1995 °°°: Golden in color. Nose shows vanilla, apricot and apple notes. Shows still a lot of oak and it opens the question whether it ever gets integrated. Despite the fact that some fruit still present I do not see much more potential in this wine

(Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan) A rich golden hue in the decanter, where this wine rested for two hours before tasting. Initially served at about 8°C (better too cool than too warm), but allowed to warm significantly in the glass. The nose is reserved and linear, not tight but certainly tightly framed, with nuances of pear and lime fruit intermingled with polished acacia wood. The palate is substantial, vigorous, well defined as the nose suggested, broadening out a little in the midpalate to reveal a richer character, warm and yet firmly composed. The finish is delightful, with a little grip here, but also evolved, slightly honeyed lime and wood. It is also very long. Delicious, and ready now, although there is no urgent rush to drink up.
