    October 13, 2019 - Decanted for two hours before pairing with grilled lamb chops. Deep ruby colouring with a bold nose of cassis, plum, smoke, leather, and a bit of cedar. Sharp in acidity and full of gripping tannins, the wine presents a full body of ripe dark fruit, mature oak, and smoky, leather, and coffee / dark chocolate flavours. A great wine with an impacting finish of olive, leather, and coffee flavours. Could age for many more years but I got impatient. Paired immaculately with the lamb as well. I have another bottle waiting for 2023-2024 drinking in the cellar, excited to see what happens.

    October 3, 2019 - 2018 Bordeaux tasting event (Stockholm): Sweet opulent dark red fruit nose, a 99 pointer on the nose. Soft in the mouth but the tannin needs more time.

    August 26, 2019 - Decanted for an hour. Very well balanced with a strong cigar note that intensified over time. Powdery texture, condensed milk (almost like pomerol). Great representation of haut brion, in a subdued color. Would have been better with 3-5 years.

    August 14, 2019 - Almost leaps out of the glass at you with intense dark fruit and some floral aspects. The earthy notes are buried, perhaps awaiting some more bottle age. The purity of fruit and balance is this wines calling card, it's just marvelous. The tannins are present and well integrated, which pairs well with the juicy acidity of this wine which allows it to dance on the palate for a long finish! I would seriously consider another 4+ years of cellaring before drinking again. Peaked with about an hour of decanting.

    (Domaine de Chevalier (Pessac-Léognan)) Cabernet Sauvignon 58%, Merlot 35%, Cabernet Franc 5%, Petit Verdot 7%. A glossy, crimson rim, with a darker core than some wines. Creamy confit fruit on the nose here, showing cherry pie with a spicy, slightly peppery edge. A creamy entry here, the fruit very polished as the nose suggested, well buffed with buttery-creamy oak elements. Beautifully vibrant acidity here, the tannins firm and ripe but better covered by the texture of the wine than some others are. They come through only to dominate in the finish and length, which is considerable. It feels very comfortable and integrated in the mouth. Excellent effort.
