    March 29, 2017 - Improved with 1-2hrs of air. Smooth and precise. Fair expression of this reliable St Estephe terroir. Drink or will hold. Shame I have only one bottle.

    March 28, 2017 - Needed a couple of hours in a decanter but after airing it eased the tannins a made this a very smooth and enjoyable wine. Still plenty of life left so no hurry to drink.

    December 19, 2015 - Bought this at a reasonable price and was curious to see if it would be worth further purchases. It was a bit blocky/monolithic on opening, and I was a little disappointed. I decanted it for 2 hours, and it transformed wonderfully, taking on all the lovely mineral elegance of the 06 Calon Segur, though scaled back a bit. The nose is fresh with ground coffee hints. Beautiful red berries come through on the palate with a mid length mineral finish. Very moreish indeed. This really needs some time yet - I would give it 5 years.

    November 21, 2015 - Much better now than it was a couple of years ago. With 1hr in a decanter was smooth, tannins smooth, and actual fruit! It's not a blockbuster, but very correct for the appellation (which is all you can ask for the price).

    February 8, 2015 - Generic mid level Bordeaux with a bit of age on it. For once I would say this would have been better 2-3 years ago. Now this is all fading fruit, fading structure but without any tertiary development. This shows the narrow range between a good and bad Bordeaux. It could have been really nice, and but for a few tweaks here and there ...... well....
