    December 29, 2021 - From one of my favourite chateau and having seen reasonable reviews, not overly blown away by this one. to me seems like a little bit of an underperformance from this great vintage. 1996 is still my go-to and waiting for 09/10 to come through.

    December 26, 2021 - Decanted 6hrs. Served with our family’s first Beef Wellington for XMAS dinner, a great pairing. I really am trying avoid using the cliche of ‘classic’, but that pretty much sums up a 21 year old claret that is from a structured vintage and a most reliable and very steady Chateau. It seduces on the nose and around the edges, with the outer layers revealing all that one would think of with a Pauillac - Cassis, pencil shavings, a good dose of damp soil, etc. The core however, came across as fairly wound up and tight, giving a strong indication that further development is likely down the road.

    December 12, 2021 - Nose is a bit smokey, a bit of cedar, and sweet ripe berries, with a hint of darkness. Terrific mouthfeel- bright acidity, pure long fruit, fine silky tannins. Long finish. My only criticism is that this could have more body, but this is a very fine claret worthy, real bordeaux. Drink now or in the next 10 years.

    November 27, 2021 - The most underwhelming, correct, red Bdx in recent memory.

    It has everything in place, but… It's watery. The opposite of intense or inspiring. I don't get the hype of this mediocre Pauillac-typical wine.

    Acidity is a little too high and the tannic structure = doors closed.

    Stashers: keep!

    November 6, 2021 - PNP. Cork in fine shape, Decanted off a decent amount of sediment. Cigar box, some cedar, a touch of earthy funk in a good way. Subtle black fruit, quite delicate up front, but reveals its layers as it coats the mouth. Tannins are still a bit course but not distracting, mouthwatering finish. Drinking beautifully right now.

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!!
