Yes! This is better then last. Silkness and pleasant long after taste. Guess it is in or near peak.

马克西米诺庄主熟果味,强丹宁,中等回味,还不错,但绝对不如一年前。如果这个年份的这款酒2008,2009年多次赢了波尔多一级庄,估计是因为她的成熟比较早而那些一级庄当时还太年轻,她们需要至少十年才进入适饮期。

It is good when served cold. By cold I mean under 10℃, or you will feel stickiness.

Light yellow, pear and melon aroma. Crispy and refreshing although the bitter aftertaste is a bit too strong to me. This is an unoak (or very light oak) version of Chardonnay.

With receiving pear type aroma and straw pale yellow color reveals good acidity of pomelo along with pear and melon. Refresh! I think it's in a good drinking spot now

It's different this time brownish red with distinct fruit favor of banana base. Ripe fruit with idine and grip and smooth tannin.

Still good. Similar to prior note. Feel a bit longer in finish this time.

May have passed its peak. Not enough fruits so mostly on the bitterness side. Brownish on red with some black sediment. Finish still long and enjoyable.

In a good place right now! Attractive Ruby color combining perfume aroma, balance with complexity, not overly fruity. Smooth yet grippy tannin with after tastes last for minutes. Enjoyment when trying to stay away from corona!

Purplish inky, especially from the cork. good viscosity. Taste like figs with slight bitterness. Offdry. Smooth yet feel some alcohol. Not sure I agree on the high scores, none the less, it's enjoyable.

Can't resist the temptation to try again. It may not have the complexity of a mature Sauternes, but the balance and refreshing syrup taste certainly worth it. Good that it's not super sweet as well.

Inviting aroma upon open, dark red. Ripe fruits taste with slight spicy, some coffee,little earthy. Tannin polished but firm. Lasting aftertaste with some sweetness. Not sure to the level of Lafite, but no doubt a good wine ready to drink.

Guess can't resist the temptation of attractive color and perfume aroma. Similar to prior note, notice a bit more meaty this time. Creamy and silky, lingering in mouth forever. Really enjoyable now, will that be any better down the road?

Deep red, full body. Aroma of mulberry, vanilla, and some oak. Similar in taste. Not sure if just this bottle served or because it is new, I feel oak taste was too strong which covered the nice fruits and complexity.

Deep red, full body. Nose of vanilla with a bit too much oak to me. Taste of blue berry, chocolate, and somehow distinct oak woody bitness. Hope that can be more integrated with some aging. Good balance and complexity.

Very deep red, with garnet edge, can't see through the glass. Full body. Inviting aroma of berries, light toast, and some flowers. Taste of ripe plum and berries, with dark chocolate, slight herbs in the background. Could be a good challenger to opus one and dominus if finish can be longer.

This is a regular wood cork bottle serving around 13°C this time. Purplish red with slight orange edge. A bit on the sweeter side with slight bitterness in the background of firm and polished tannin. Medium to long sweet watery aftertaste. To me better than serve in RT.

Yellowish slightly orange. Fragrance of old tangerines skin, honey, and maybe A bit of pineapple. On the light side as a sauterne, yet refreshing. Right amount of sweetness to me.

比上两次好,陈皮蜂蜜的底子加上一些梅子的酸味,没那么甜了,柔顺而带质感。

Attractive deep red. Full body. Nice aroma upfront, then mostly from oak with slight alcohol. Taste is smooth with black cherry, espresso and pencil lead. Finish not too long, but enjoyable. I thinking it is right in the drinking window now.

Drink alongside with the world's end little sister. This one is more fruit forward and sweeter. Less attractive aroma though. Both are firm and smooth.
