    March 21, 2021 - Bought two cases en primeur and this was the first bottle from the 2nd case. Reading some notes I was slightly concerned that I might have left too long. Had at lunch and drank beautifully. You can see the age in the rim but there is still some fruit. Finished the bottle that evening and it was even better and the nose had come out. Very good.

    May 3, 2019 - Decanted 3-4 hours. Quite red color and no signs of ageing (brinking). Very reserved in both nose and mouth. The fruit is not open and charming and never became. Lots of graphite, wood, stone, wet earth and liquorice. Not overly much tannic grip but doesn't seem over yet either.

    April 19, 2019 - Very surprised by this bottle, as it was far better than expected. It was clear to me on opening that this was an excellent second wine that represented the great 1998 vintage in Pessac well. Excellent complexity, with lots of cassis, graphite, pencil shavings, violets, and espresso on the nose. The palate was nicely balanced and integrated. Very elegant on the palate. It never lost any steam over 2-3 hours. This wine has at least 7-10 years left in its prime drinking window, which is pretty impressive for a second wine.

    May 15, 2018 - Le timing est parfait pour cette bouteille , encore fringuant pour un vin de 20 ans ! c'est bien bon ,mais comme trop souvent à bordeaux sa manque un peu d'âme .
