Almost a ruby crystal color in the glass. Showed great currant and blackberry fruit with some leather from age on the nose and palate. Amazingly delicious from bottle open for 2-3 hours. Unfortunately I let it rest some and when I came back, it had fallen apart and had lost any vivacity. Not bad just nothing interesting left in the last third. I would recommend drinking upon opening and not getting it too much air.
Smokey nose, earthy too, a bit flat. Elegant balance on the palate, just not showing much, structure is weak too. Very tight still after a few hours, black fruit but very one-dimensional. Ok, but not showing the best of what to expect from the vintage.
A classically styled bordeaux with some green elements - bell peppers. At first it seemed a bit light and angular, but it got better in the glass. Didn't decant but a short spell in the decanter might have helped. The second wines of first growths have to offer some of the worst value for money in the world!
