Colour still very clear and young, developed a very complex and very long finishing after 3 hours decant ... i thinking this can last a lot more than next 10 years.

Good length and nice structure, amazing long finishing. However I find the bottle was not very balance despite 2 hours bottle decant... tannins was there and suspect another few more years to let it settle down ...

Decanted for 2 hours, it helped to open up nicely ... however, if you can wait for another 3-5 years would be nicer

Still young, decant for one hour. Med+, more powerful compares to other 2 pauillac tested alongside. dark fruits, mineral, firm tannins. much more approachable after about 1.5 hours. finishing is long. try again after 5 years.

Needs two hour decant to open up ... The Wine started with good quality nose and structure but can feel high alcohol heat (14.5%)! Got better gradually and not until the final glass after 2 hours decanting the wine can together with delicious vanilla, mocha, minerals and long finishing. My advise is to wait another 3-5 years for the next bottle.

Opened up and gained more weight after 1.5 hour decant. Dark fruits, toast, choc, tannin, graphite at first, then turned mineral and saline that will keep this wine for another 10 years easily.

A food wine, acidic a bit higher when drinking alone. BUT when we had Cured Mackerel with the wine, magic happened ... fruit / crisp / caramel / savoury, complex and long finishing.
