    October 28, 2018 - Tried right after pouring in the decanter and it was good to go. Opens quickly, tannins resolved and drinking quite nicely now. The fruit is not hard or green as often encountered in 04 Bordeaux, particularly when young. Better than expected, time has indeed paid off with this one.

    August 18, 2018 - Been watching this evolve since 2015. Finally, it is coming around and maturing nicely. Tannins, while still grainy, have mellowed out. Tertiary notes very present with asphalt, charcoal, tobacco, and licorice. Still has a very good core of black fruit and plums in the center. This has improved with age.

    July 9, 2017 - Sunday Group: Mini-Horizontals- Mondavi, Dominus & Chappellet (Mike's): Dark color. Aromas of dark fruit, incense and plum with grapey overtones. Dark fruit and plum flavors with a shortish finish.

    March 14, 2017 - Still tart, tannic & minty. Pleasant enough aromatics but this could easily go another 5 years in the Eurocave.

    February 12, 2016 - Better than the last time... Full, round, almost mature with coffee grounds, espresso roast, chocolate, eucalyptus, red and blue berries, with a tart, tannic finish.

    (Chateau Faugères St Emilion) Again this is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from vines that average 35 years of age. It spends 14 months in a mix of 50% used oak and 50% new. Lovely, pure, deep fruit on the nose, with a dark, roasted, meaty style. This is very attractive. It has texture and a fresh and admirable depth. The tannins are ripe and well balanced and overall this is very nicely composed. It is stylish, concentrated, and it has a dense finish. This has great potential.
