Community Tasting Note

  • Ho Bryan wrote: 93 points

    May 8, 2011 - Totally infanticide. If you own one, do not open for at LEAST 3-5 years. If you're thinking of buying one for soonish drinking - move to something at least 5 years older. I got this simply to see what all the fuss is about this estate following a bit of coverage on wine blogs. It's good stuff, great fruit, really deep midpalate, and a great tannic structure. Still some oak on the nose. I'd love this at up to $100 a bottle; but the retail price I paid was some multiple of that - equivalent to a decent vintage Haut Brion, and multiples of a good vintage lesser cru classe. Don't see the value here myself. Good, but not that good.
