Appearance: Bright and clear, this wine is of medium ruby color, with legs. Nose: Clean, the nose shows medium (+) intensity aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrant and black cherry, maturity notes of tobacco and bits of savory, pungent spice of liquorice, MLF notes of cream, oak notes of cedar, mineral notes of pencil lead, and kernel notes of coffee. The wine is developing. Palate: Dry, it has medium acidity and medium (+) tannin of ripe and velvety texture. The alcohol level is medium, with a medium (+) body, showing medium intensity flavors of black fruit such as black cherry and dark plum, animal notes of raw meat, herbaceous notes of blackcurrant leaf, oak notes of cedar, kernel notes of chocolate. The wine has a medium finish. Conclusion: Good quality Pauillac with a fairly intense nose of good complexity, though the wine needs to air for about 2 hours before enjoying and got a weird aromas initially. The palate is a bit too herbaceous, and probably due to the issue of the ripeness, with a reasonable concentration and complexity. Overall a wine of balance and structure, it has a fair length and is ready to drink now, though can benefit from further ageing of another 2-3 years.
Dark ruby color with sulphur or ammonia like nose. Not very pleasant. The wine was taken out from 17c cellar and breathed in glass for Half hour. Started a little sour, relatively light body and doesn't last long. After 4 hours in glass it seems better body structure with bitterness, sweet and tannins, unripe plum? I would gave score of 80. Considering the cost, it's final score is 77. Would not buy again.
