    February 10, 2019 - a little corked

  • tbabes wrote: 95 points

    February 2, 2019 - The fill was into the neck and the cork was sound; popped, poured and consumed over the course of dinner. A dark purple-ruby core, with some hints of garnet at the rim. A very complex and expressive bouquet, with notes of cassis, roasted herbs, leather, briar patch and cigar box. Medium-bodied, with a velvety texture, great depth, good delineation, and a long finish. This wine continues to evolve and improve!

    February 1, 2019 - 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste. Double decant with extended slow o. Needed aggressive swirling to unlock a beautiful aroma. Palate really well balanced. Freshness to offset a spectrum of dark red and black fruit. Billowing wave of soft tannin on the finish. Over time a salinity that creeps up on you that adds some balance and nuance. Young, but approachable and delicious. 93+.

    January 19, 2019 - A deepish colour; mature, slightly earthy, with attractive blackcurrant fruit, good weight and persistence. Lacks a little refinement, but is otherwise very good. For current drinking.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Grand Puy Lacoste) Tight out of the gates but with some coaxing a gorgeous nose of tar, blackberry, tobacco, currants, black cherries mineral and a touch of toasty oak. Very aromatically precise . . . Rich and decadent in the mouth with superconcentrated fruit . . . Firms up on the finish but has astounding length and brilliant delineation . . . Wow!!
