  • One of the joys of opening older Bordeaux is simply twirling and sniffing. And This certainly doesn't disappoint. First, medium red and some bricking as expected. Nose opens and moves between light mature raspberry, blackberry, coffee, cigar, and oak. All in harmony. Nice balance through mid with a bit of acidity on the finish. Slight tannins. IMO, drink now or sooner rather than later.

  • This is the first bottle opened from a stash of six and I'm delighted to have waited till now. Colour still a vigorous dark red with just red with just a hint of bricking. Nose was well developed with quite primary red and dark fruit with floral and cedar touches. Palate was medium/full with gracious fruit, good depth, some secondary notes and minerals, good acidity, caressing texture and classical shape with a queit entry expanding mid-palate, strong finish supported by still firm tannins and an after-taste in the form of a quite long diminuendo of fine aromas. At or near its peak. Very good.

  • This must be the most popular and wine of the night as I got the last pour when I finally move to this wine.
    Dark Ruby with garnet hue. Subtle tobacco, cigar box interwoven with blackcurrant, hints of menthol and toasty oak. Nice elegant bouquet.
    Always a robust and structured wine, lifted elegant notes with tobacco, menthol, blackberry, hints of chocolate. It has good acidity backbone, smooth and drinking well but can hold very long. Long lingering finish with fine chewy tannins. Apparently one glass is not enough for anyone who enjoy this wine.

  • Tom's Bday at H-Club: Next to 95s of: Comtesse Pichon, Leoville Barton, Insignia. This was even with the Insignia (comtesse won), but bit more restraint and with a younger look. just very good, nice fresh color, good nose, and on palate just solid bordeaux. This could have enjoyed a day decant to develop everything. it wasn't tight but it probably would show more.
