Fantastic value Pomerol. Drinking very nicely now, but will improve in the cellar.

Lovely balance. Could be drank now, but a little too early for me. I believe it would benefit significantly from just one more year in the cellar. Anyway, this is (will be) a great value wine.

2008 Château Clinet Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
Promising, but, slightly too young today. Concentrated and well balanced. The main problem at this stage is that the aromas are oak-dominated and a bit boring. But, I am sure this well turn out well. 92-93 in a few years

Excellent wine for the price. Is still very much alive. Complex nose. Full bodied. Drinking well now, but will last 5-10 years.

This bottle was a disaster. No fruit, very tannic. I hope it was faulty, and that my remaining bottle is better. Will see...

Disappointed. Not a bad wine, but had higher hopes given the reputation of this wine and the tasting reports. Found the nose a little too inexpressive. The classical southern Rhone aromas are there, but the intensity and complexity are not more than average. For me this could be matched by well-made, less expensive wines from appellations like lirac, vacqueyras, or even cotes du rhone. The weight in the mouth is OK and on the positive side.

Needed a couple of hours of air to open up and flesh out. I was afraid of a disappointment when I first opened the bottle, but the wine got better and better.

2002 Château Calon-Ségur St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
This was not showing well at all, and not last time either. Weak aromas, and hollow on the palate. I do not know if it something wrong with my bottles, or if this wine is simply not successful. I have had other 2002 bordeaux from the same cellar that have been much better, such as Branaire, Meyney, Figeac, Yon Figeac. To me, 2002 seems to be a weak vintage for Calon Segur.

I liked this a lot. Quite primary still, but with some complexity due to aging. The wine is rather full bodied, with a structure on the lush/hedonistic side. Drinking very well right now, and will surely last a long time.

Good wine! An intense and interesting nose, combining sweet red fruits, garrigues and herbes, and animal notes. It has medium to full body and a good aroma intensity. The tannins are well resolved. Drinking very well right now, but will last at least 5 more years.

Very good. Intense nose, complex, mixing dark fruits with various wood aromas. Not so much evolved characteristics, but never mind. Full bodied and concentrated. Long. Very good now be will last for many years.

This was a really good Loire red. Intense nose combining dark fruits and oak with some animal notes. I think this shows great typicity and provenance. Medium bodied + and very well balanced. Thought this was a fine moment of drinking this wine. Has opened up nicely, but will last at least 5-10 more years.

I agree with others that this is an impressive wine for the price. However, I found it way too early to drink it now. This is especially because the aromas are still very primary (floral) and not very interesting at present. In my opinion, it will be MUCH better, in say 5-10 years.
