Outstanding value for money as usual for this "every day" Pauillac. Typical Pauillac nose, medium finish and nice dark cherry color. A great surprise in an otherwise unusual year. Drinks well now but could very easily rest for a further 3-5 years.
Not as good as my previous bottle. Still very nice for the price, but this bottle lacked some of the depth and layers of flavor the bottle #1 had. A little more acidity on this bottle as well. I wish I had this one with a steak, or some heavy Italian food.
The bouquet gives off a graphite odor that mellows once you begin drinking. This wine is not overly fruity, continues with the graphite theme with a hint of vanilla mixed in, medium finish. All in all a reasonable experience
Possibly a 94. Wonderful. Drank with various cheeses and salamis. This wine is reaching its peak, and is just great right now. Brick red, nose of rose petals, leather, earth, stewed strawberries, red currant, soft oak. Easy tannins, delicious savory flavors on the palate mixed with leather, stewed red fruits, and some crushed stone. Long finish. I would drink this every day if I could. Would love to drink with other dishes; it would go well with so many things.
