    October 31, 2021 - pretty darned delicious for a good value 17 year old bordeaux. Still has some pretty fruit aromas. A nice soft supple palate. Harmonious right now.

    February 17, 2021 - Plenty of chunky, savoury herbaceous black fruit still here. Nothing dazzling but solid with a nice, long bitter tobacco and pencil lead finish. Age sitting well with it at the moment so worth seeing what maturity will add

    January 9, 2021 - Textbook Pauillac. Classically apportioned, austere. Freshly cut black currant bush, cranberries, lead pencils. Opened out, softened and sweetened, with black cherries alongside the black currant, and some tobacco leaf/cigar box aromas. Round but fresh and juicy in the mouth. Long complex finish. What more could one ask for?

    December 31, 2020 - Nez sur le fruit noir, herbe. En bouche tout en rondeur, bien fondu. Ample et de belle longueur. Dans son top.

    December 26, 2020 - Quite dark and dense. Lacking finesse or precision, although the quality shows on the finish.

    December 12, 2020 - Dark cool fruits. Blackberry. Clove and fennel. Thyme and mint (menthol) on the back palate. Nice savoury notes. Still some good fine tannins on the tip of the tongue. Long and refreshing. Medium body.

    October 11, 2020 - Dark berries, mushrooms and tobacco in the nose. Blackberries, cassis, wet earth and mushrooms on the palate - very nice tertiary notes. Medium bodied with soft integrated tannins. Very classy Bordeaux structure - elegant. Medium long savory finish.
    No need to aerate here. Lovely matured Bordeaux and a lot of wine for that price tag.
    Around 260,000 bottles of this vintage were produced.

    June 15, 2020 - Fresh. Black fruits - blackberry. Really integrated. Getting some lovely secondary flavours. Little bit of pencil. Pretty long. Only medium mouthfeel. Old school. Just the biz with a steak
