  • Opened a DMG for dinner of the last day of 2015 - ruby color with very long legs - nose fruity with nutmegs and vanilla - very smooth with black currant and hints of leather and graphite - perfectly shaped CDP - long finish

  • Paling red, hints of tawny, this wine really swirls out of the glass. Elegant, delicate flavours that seem to almost wisp' such is the lightness. Sweet red fruits, but beautiful in a way that is addictive and you keep going back each tme for more. The palate is full of complexity and still has a touch of grip, with juicy flavours, but again without any overbearing heavy aspect. I always remember the reputation of CdP as being a brute of intensity and power, however this producer has always sung at a different gig to that. Take your time with this wine - get the temperature right, get your palate warmed up and take time to enjoy it. Not to be missed. 94+

  • Good solid CnDP, nothing special but good with roasted duck. Fairly young nose, fresh and some earth. Good balance with OK finish.

  • This was opened along with the 2000 VT and showed similarly, this '06 of course showing younger, with more primary fruit in comparison, but plenty of the same qualities, including red and black plummy fruit and melted liquorice. This '06 shows more alcohol on the nose, though. Still young. At Barbounia.

  • A nose of warm, baked fruit, plum, licorice and cinnamon. Open and generous palate, warm, soft fruit, spices and marked tannins. Perhaps a tad heady, not as firm and structured as the 2004. I'd give this a few more years in the cellar even if it's quite enjoyable now.
