    February 18, 2019 - MNB: Old Wines II (Jesper's): (blind)
    Medium minus ruby with a garnet rim. Slight mushroom. Dusty, musty wood.
    Dry, 14%, medium plus acid, medium plus tannins - slightly melted.
    Indistinct fruit on the nose. Dried fruit, red fruit, slight black fruit.

    Slight dog fur Brett.

    Could be Bordeaux right bank or Southern Rhône.

    Feels like slight tomato pyrazines.

    Final call:

    1994 Right Bank, St Emilion. Pavie-Macquin.

    1996 Chateau Maucaillou Moulis
    Bottle says 12.5% but I think higher.
    Analysis: This is probably Merlot-dominant, so I'm not far off. It's showing really nicely! Though it hasn’t hung onto much dark fruit.

    The vineyard is planted with 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot.

    30-40% new oak.

    November 1, 2018 - Coravin fun - 1996 Medoc decision (My place, Kent Street): From Coravin. Red currant and blackcurrant, charcuterie, leather, slightly medicinal with muted wax polish, smoke. Surprisingly tannic and drying on the palate which dominates the red fruits. Finishes quite spicy. Hmm.
