Amazingly fresh and bright. Puligny like minerality and a bright succulent middle. Real wow given the age

A nose of focused dark cherry with sweet edges and gnarly underbrush. Slightly tawny at the edges. Medium bodied, a bit sweet with a brooding core. Dark and contained. Interesting to try this over the next decade or so.

Excellent. Showing some secondary notes now but with lovely tension and balance. Fine, long and delicious

Suave and intense. Still tightly packed but with beautifully aromatic fruit. Young right now but this will be a beauty in time.

Gloriously balanced and seductive. A less ripe year so all is in check. Iron, meaty red fruit, a woody herb undertow and huge length and complexity. Stunning

Lush, intense fruit. Iodine, herbs and leather. Youthful with soft edges and the refreshing tang of viognier. Nice and fresh- old school but approachable. Not profound, but tasty.

very good. A dead ringer for bordeaux. Deep and complex. Fleshy and still very vivacious.

A lovely hazelnut, citrus and limestone nose. Toasty notes and appropriate on. Crisp mineral underneath and great power and balance. One of the best bottles I've had of the 02

A honeyed and bright nose. That 10 oiliness and a packed and rich mid-palate. Lots of stuffing and great balance. Still tightly packed

Exceptionally pure in color and nose. Really clear nose with tobacco, tar, red fruit. A beautifully pure and focused palate. Super clear but still very focused. Incredible given its age. Great fun- avery classy wine

Iron, leather, garrigue, dark red fruit. Broad middle. Resolved tannins. A masculine feral thing in all the best ways.

Excellent. Bright. White flowers. Real focus. Restrained but lively. A lovely steely, flinty, mineral quality but beautifully round-edged and seamless . Has years ahead but lovely right now.

Very good. A brambly, intense fruit with herbs, bloody gamey quality and great length and structure. In a good place now given air

Not amazing. Good quality fruit but lacks the delineation and structure of more-balanced vintages

Very young but clearly very classy fruit. Real length, depth of flavor and clarity. Exceptional promise but really should probably be let for a decade

Dense, oaky with vanilla, cherry and dark fruit. Compact and a bit new world right now, but hopefully will settle into something much more lovely

Nice, but a touch of oxidation. I'll try a few more soon to see if this is a general note

Lovely brambly intense fruit. Tart and dark. Persistence. Not as pretty as some but cleat and long.

Dark, rich and still compact. Inky with roasted fruit. Still young and intense. Good stuff, but probably worth waiting another 5 years

This is too young to be drinking this but at least we know we beat the premox. Great power, taut, good acidity but the oomph of batard richness, depth and complexity. At the moment, due to its youth, this is all coiled in a punchy, satisfying middle. It'll unwind well with age but is certainly enjoyable right now

Spectacular. Really accessible, broad and clear red fruit. Great detail and clarity. Power yet finesse. Slightly edged the 95 side by side but pure class. Will last a good few years but certainly not a crime to drink this now

Lovely stuff. Great clarity, depth of flavor, clear fruit. Young, but certainly not infanticide. This has a good few years left but is a delicious, balanced and great wine.
