early in it's drinking window
soft rounded edges a surprise
the french earth has integrated nicely
fruit is cabernet sauvignon forward
I am finding 2009 to be more approachable and to my liking compared with 2010

decanted 4-5 hrs
this stepped up to the plate after the decant
long luxurious length and finish
Unique cranberries and fruit profile that I have only tasted with this producer
may not be the wine that unicorn is but who cares?
the winner compared to 2003 this evening

dry cork needed help removing
cranberries and spanish earth predominant
length was a little short compared with the 2011 presumably from the difficult year
still, a delight this evening

seamless and delicious
tannins have integrated so secondary notes predominate
so much blueberries but an earthy elegance too

drank from a 375
very tight upon opening
then opened up so nicely with dark and tart fruit along with just enough tannins
built for the long haul with years of life left

in fantastic shape
a nose to take to heaven

crisp and clean and delicious
however dwarfed by the older rose vintages it was up against especially the 2004 P2 and 1996 P2
needless to say, what a night of great champagnes and burgundies

in perfect drinking shape
floral notes apricots and an elegant sweetness
tons better than 1995 which was a menthol laden mess
first try with a foie gras pairing that was near perfect pairing

always fun to try a not chateau d'quem that is good
and this is good with tight sweetness ,not overwhelming with apricots
there may be other fruits in there but it's all about the apricots for me
drank from a 375 near the end of our holiday party

nothing wrong with this but maybe a little shut down
nothing seemed to indicate this as made for the long run
so will leave this as an easy drinker without much complexity for now

initial demure fruit was the opening
this quickly evolved into a fruit/integrated tannins that exploded across the whole palate and its long length seemed to never let up
hope all that got to taste this special wine appreciated the experience
