    November 9, 2019 - Had with cheeses after game. Best with dark chocolate cookies. It was ready to drink. Medium bodied
    Very nice example of 2010 vintage

    October 10, 2019 - Tasted next to Branaire 2000, later 2005 La Tour Carnet, and this stood out for opulence, ripeness and in your face kind of style. It‘s still kind of enjoyable though but not the style I am usually going for. Notes of plum, sweet spices, chocolate, sweet dark cherries, also some cedar wood and smoke. it‘s full-bodied, dense and powerful, with pretty high tannin that feels a touch overextracted, but also good medium-high acidity. Good length. A lot of people will love this.... I am kind of torn about it...

    October 10, 2019 - Tasted blind. I was guessing Chateaubeuf. This says it all. A very ripe Merlot with lots of dark fruit, licorice, oak. Bitterness on the finish. Enough acidity for the ripeness but still too rich for me. Not really Bordeauesque.

    June 9, 2019 - Silky. Forest floor, cassis, spice and slight chocolate. Great now but how good is this going to be in a few years?

    April 17, 2019 - Lovely dark red fruit with a nice dryness on the finish. Luxurious, delicious and extravagant. Will improve with more age.

    (Chateau Le Bon Pasteur (Pomerol)) A glossy, dark cherry red hue here, with a wide crimson-cherry rim. Rather a crunchy style to the fruit on the nose, with thick-skinned blackcurrant and plum fruits. The palate is fairly restrained for the vintage, gently textured with plenty of structure showing through. Despite this it does have a rather supple and savoury feel, even as the charcoaly tannins appear in the middle of the wine. And there is plenty of freshening acidity which goes with that crunchy style of fruit. Quite a grippy finish, with a lot of tannin here.
