Typical PN fruit, medium body, and some depth. Not a thrilling wine, but OK. Hoped for more though.

Very balanced and elegant, this beauty is in a prime drinking window now. Smooth and deep fruit, integrated oak, and sandy tannins in the finish. Not spectacular, but a very sophisticated and harmonious version of this standard cuvée from Janasse. 93+

A bit disappointing. Fresh appearance, but a bit thin on the fruit components. Lacking depth and complexity. Expected more – odd bottle? 89?

Really elegant and typical right bank claret. A bit closed to start with, but over time it showed nice features of dark cassis fruit, tobacco, leather and a lingering, refreshing and elegant finish. Too bad this was the last bottle. 92 for now, but with potential for a higher score.
