    October 17, 2020 - The wine is a little closed after uncorking. Give it 2-3 hours in the decanter. Nice ripe cherry and dark berry notes in the nose. Cassis, blackberries, blueberries, soft eucalyptus and plum paired with soft leather and cigar box notes. Medium+ bodied with a nicely balanced acidity. Amazing complex structure with super elegant tannins. Beautifully balanced wine with a lot of finesse. Seductive and very long finish.
    No need to rush here, this vintage has plenty of amazing years ahead if stored well. Drink from 2025 to 2035.

    August 5, 2020 - SLDS August 2020 - Maybe the world is ending tasting: Earthy, plum. blackberry, cocoa on the nose. Immense class on the palate, with fine tannins in balance with the deep fruit. At 20 years it is still extremely young but not impenetrable. Another 15-20 years should see this near its peak.

    July 20, 2020 - It's fun to taste the 00 Margaux, although it's far too young. Unless you're driven by some intense academic curiosity, I'd suggest avoiding these for another 5-10 years. That disclaimer aside, I really enjoyed this. With air and coaxing, a blueberry and blackberry fruit profile unfolded over the course of 3-4 hours, accompanied by elegant potpourri, pencil, and mineral notes, the nose quiet but undeniably intense. The beautiful palate saturation and long finish that follow suggest a great deal of positive development from here, but it's tough to claim the certainty of 97+ points from this particular tasting.

    July 8, 2020 - Bordeaux Left Bank First Growth BYO (Grand Hyatt Hong Kong): Magnum. Heavy structure, good sweetness, not exploding yet but obviously very fine. 95-96+
