    March 27, 2020 - not much development - remarkably lightweight for the vintage - not sure where it will go from here - inclined to leave the remaining bottles for a while

    March 14, 2020 - One of a dozen bought on release. Decanted for a couple of hours.
    Perfect cork, good deep colour but slight browning.

    On the nose it is superb: classic mature Pauillac with plenty of fruit, tobacco and a slight smokiness which is very intriguing. On the palate it is medium bodied, perfectly integrated again with good fruit and an agreeable freshness. There is still some tannic backbone but it is not obtrusive. The aftertaste is exceptionally long. Overall an elegant, mature claret which is perhaps slightly understated.

    I think it is at its plateau of full maturity now, but it should stay there for a good while yet.

    February 1, 2020 - Popped'n poured, at home with steak, which may account for this bottle's youthfulness. Very approachable now, but ideally with a couple hour decant and food. As with a lot of left bank 2000's - considerable life ahead.

    January 20, 2020 - Ruby core and just bricking on the edges. Firmly in the red fruited spectrum, revealing raspberry and plum, sweet vanilla and green tobacco leaf. Still youthful, not displaying much secondary character, but the tannins are fully resolved. There’s a musky complexity on the finish.

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!!
