This wine was drank at home without decanting. It was slightly orange in colour and a bit cloudy when poured. The nose had some cherry and medicinal smells to it. In the glass was a wine that had lots of red cherries and some vanilla tastes. It was also quite sour and had strong acidity to it. The tannins were strong but at a good level. This wine gave no obvious signs that it was corked or spoiled but I certainly didn't enjoy it tonight.
Coravined two small glasses. NOWHERE near ready. Lovely nose but brutish palate with up front tannins. I will decant the remainder in about 6 months for at least 4-6 hours and let the rest sit for another 5 years. Should be spectacular when mature.
Aromi tostati da caldarroste caramellate e toni vegetali, molto ricco, acqua di fiori e di cottura delle verdure bollite. Poi sottobosco, humus e un tocco un pò rustico, selvaggio, fin troppo pungente che vira sull' acetico. Molto etereo, il frutto è sotto spirito, ma i toni sono scuri, concentrati tanto da imbrigliare i profumi e renderlo ancora un pò monocorde.
In bocca ha un temperamento da vino "moelleux", rotondità tattile, calorosa. Ha un grande allungo giocato su registri speziati di cannella e radici di liquirizia, anche qui il tannino è davvero masticabile, non ti molla più e fodera la lingua per secondi che sembrano minuti. SUl finale bella scodata salmastra, ma il legno nuovo è ancora un pò troppo invadente.

(Chateau Pavie St Emilion) A very dense and glossy appearance here. The nose is appealingly aromatic, carrying the essence of freshly crushed blackberries, perhaps a little cherry, alongside which there is plenty of spice and aromatics derived from this wines time in oak, which exceeded 24 months. The palate is initially a little surprising, not showing a lot of flesh at first, but this fills out in the midpalate and it has all the rich, creamy texture here that you would expect. There is a wonderful depth of fruit, with a pickling-spice complexity that sings extract, quality and promise to me. Deep, structured, but harmonious, the tannins being firm and defined, but well covered with fruit. This has excellent potential.
