Still so young with a deep red edge. A lot of potential. Drink now +5 years.

Lovely Wine. Plenty of wet underwood and mushrooms in the nose, and on the palate pencil and pretty much like a Paulliac bottle. Two hours of decant and it kept developing over the following hours. A huge wine with potential for 15 years more. Still in its prime. 96 points.

Completely anonymous even after 1½ hrs of decant. Maybe it will wake up in 10-15 years, but I think not.

Perfect balanced CCR. One of the best - very high QPR. My last bottle - look forward to the 2009 CCR and 2007 CC.

By far better than last tasted in 2014. Decanted for 2 hrs. Very delicious from the start and typical Pauillac. If this is almost just drinkable now, the greater sister must wait for another five years.

Been looking forward to this one - my second bottle. First one consumed back in 2013. I PNP which I regret a bit. Very tannic and still too young to bring forward the fruit before three-four hours in the glass. There fore not so many brunello charactheristics unitl day two. It reminds me that if you are about to drink 2004, 2006, 2007 and younger - pour it into your decanter - if you want to give the wine the best conditions and you and (your guests) the best BDM experience.

Very delicious and definately not out of drinking windows. Still loads of fruit, pencil, vanilla and oak as the most classic reds from Bordeaux - left and right bank. With a second wine like this, then why bother buying the first growth?

A very fine and delicious wine. It was brought on to the table to set the scene in a tasting which included Montrose, Pontet-Canet, Branaire-Ducru and Dauzac - all in vintage 2000. We thought it was a splendid smell of merlot from St.Emillion and was a perfect spell in an all left bank night.

Decanted for 2 hrs. What a surprise is was to us this 5cru. Our expectations were low due to the relatively low price (€40) and the fading of the drinking window. It performed, though, really well and was a typical Margaux wine with elegance and complexity. It kept on developing in the glass a was a great success. Drink until 2020.

Decanted for 2 hrs. A brilliant wine and far more complex and elegant than its younger 2003 edition. This is what St.Julien is all about. Drink for the next 10-12 years without concern.

Decanted 1½ hour. My first Montrose and what a start! It is so balanced, intense and complex as it keeps on developing the glass. Very smooth and with a +45 sec lenght. Was overrun by Pontet-Canet 2000 on the night, but perhaps it will be even better in 5-10 years. Buy it and bury it in the cellar.

Decanted 1½ hour. This is a beauty. Very young and dense. Typical Pauillac with pencil and black currant in the nose and some classic secondary notes on the palate. Although in battle with Montrose 2000, this was WOTN. A huge wine. A long life ahead of it.

Decanted 1 hr prior to the tasting. This bottle was both past its peak and dead. No fruit and no live left. Quite a pity as we was looking forward to this bottle. First we thought something was wrong as the nose revealed tertiaire notes. But it just didn't live anymore.

Decanted for 1 hr. Full maturity and very delicious. It keeps on developing in the glass. Honey, creme brûlee and wine gums. The reason why it doesn't go all the way to 100 pts is the bottle variation. This bottle seemed a little old which 1990 normally doesn't. But brilliant anyhow. The best Yquem I've tried.

Pomerol '89 is never disappointing. Parker describes it as "old" and far beyond its drinking window. Our call suggested it will still have 5-8 years pleasure ahead of it. Very elegant, silky and smooth. The colour was a little brown on the edge, but on the palate it was completely different and with a lot of fruit and tannins. You can easily waint. Regret I didn't buy more.

Impressingly drinkable despite on the edge of its drinking window. Although only few notes of fruit, it was still quite tannic and with the expected tertiare aromas; leather, wet under wood and horse stable. We were surprised of the QPR.

Two hrs decant. A little brown edge and a smell of old cheese firstly. Then it changed over the following hours and got more modern with blackberries, vanilla and mint. The secondary notes is not that explicit as in other of my 2001's, so I asume this one could last for 10+ years. A pleasure.

A big surprise. After just one hour in the decanter it was full of pleasure: Loads of oak, vanilla and fresh blackberries. I need to buy some more. I bet this will improve a couple of points further.

This is surely my favorite BDM '04. After a decanting which removed almost 10 percent of the bottle, I gave it air, air, air. The first glass we had with our dinner and it was fleshy, acid and tannic. Though, some of the characteristics of sangiovese emerged. The second and third glass was all pleasure. The secondary notes now emerged: vanilla, underwood, blackberries and some strawbeeries. It is a little sweeter than I remember the first bottle from last year. I am now finishing the bottle and I wish I could pause this moment. I have to bottles left, but I can't wait. It is too good to hide away, but if it improves in the next five years it could be the brunello of all time.

This was my second and last bottle and it was remarkably better than the first one (drank Jan' 14 - 88 pts.). Here there was far more secondary notes and it appeared a wine in its right age. Perfect maturity. Still not a big BDM, but I will recommend it anyhow because of QPR. It will, though, fade out of maturity before 2027 in my opinion. Drink -2020.

A great experience. After some troubles with opening the bottle, it was poured into some brandnew Zalto glass. The nose developed (and improved) over an hour and was cigar case, fresh wood, black currant and finally sweet chocolate. On the palate a little more anonymous but still classic bordeaux. The fruit was, though, almost gone. But still a lot of tannins and acid. I would prefer to drink it with food on the side another day. Drink up.

I have been looking so much forward to drinking this vintage when it was mature and showing its best. That is now. P&P and served at 15 degrees celsius - giving it an opportunity to adapt and open. In the nose very typical St. Julien (and a little bit Pauillac) with pencil, cigar box and vanilla. It got even more sophisticated after an hour. On the palate the tannins was quite harsh in the beginnning, but they softened after some time. This is fully mature, but you can wait up to 15 years in my opinion as it won't lose its fruit until then. Great experience.

Not improved since my first bottle over a year ago. It is very mature now, but it doesn't have the depth of the 2004 or 2006 vintages. Still a lot of secondary notes appear in the nose and on the palate. Very classy. Drink now.

Very complex - even more than expected. This vintage is quite poor, but one shouldn't hesitate to buy a first growth like this. I was blown away by the nose and its intensity. Cigarbox and blackberries exploded into our noses. On the palate it still has loads of fruit, and no one would have expected this bottle to be more than 20 years old nor to be from a quite weak vintage. Excellent experience and not my last glass of HB. Drink 5+years.

Very drinkable although 17 years of age and not optimal cellaring. Brown at the edge and quite tawny when poured. A lot of tannins, though, which makes it very drinkable and accessible. After two hours in the glass, it is over the top. Drink 2+ years.

Nice experience and fully mature. P&P. Not really typical Pauillac (e.g. no pencil in the nose), but black currant, blackberries and wet underwood. The ladies at the table preffered this one in stead of pinot noir.

A lovely nose with underwood and fresh wet leaves, black currant and black berries. The core of Margaux style. On the palate still some fresh fruit but the after taste is short - due to the age. Drink your last bottles before 2016.

Imødekommende, intens og strømlinet duft af grafit med tætte underliggende noter af bær, mint, viskelæder og cigarkasse. Meget aristokratisk og en smule reserveret. Afdæmpet og underspillet med kraft til mindst 10 år mere.

Dyb rød farve. Meget indbydende duft af intrigante bær med en undertone af dyb lakrids. Noter af hybenrose, boysenbær, solbær og cigarkasse. Drikkeklar med perfekt balance og ekstremt lang eftersmag. Drikkes min. 10 år mere.

After seven hours of decating still hard tannins and quite unapproachable. The nose is the most classic nuances of BDM, but on the palate, you will just have to wait. 2018+.

Nice and elegant St.Estephe. I guess it would have to be my favorite Bdx Region after all. On day 2 the tannins were still harsh. I beleive it is because of the vintage. This will be drinkable for +10 years.

This is already drinkable and a have the characteristics of a classic brunello. Decanted for 2 hrs and wonderfully evolved nose when poured in the glass. On the palate mushrooms, wet wood, blackberries and barn. Drink now or hold for 5-10 years.

Indeed much better when getting a Little older. Both the nose and the palate had much more Brunello elements in it. Still quite tannic, even though it was decanted and poured back to the bottle 1½ hour prior to drinking it. Once again I am happy to see what happens when you put brunello in the cellar and leave it for years. I can't recommend this enough.
