    May 20, 2019 - 30 min decant. Impressive nose of blackberry with some nice secondary elements. Similar on the palate. Elegant with good balance, low acidity, gentle tannins on the finish. Great overall and drinking very well now.

    October 12, 2018 - Good, but not great. Loved the 2010. This one took a bit...about 90 min...to open. Then released a bouquet of plum, peppermint and cinnamon, pipe tobacco clove and oak. Pleasant mouthfeel, balanced fruit and tannins, low to med acidity, with signature PL chalkiness. The finish doesn’t linger, though.

    October 2, 2018 - Once opened, an aroma of oak, black currants, and tobacco fills the nose. On first sip, a wonderfully dark and rich Bordeaux. After decanting for a few hours, the wine became smoother with additional cherries and plums on the palate. A great everyday Bordeaux and well worth the money.

    August 31, 2018 - Enjoyed over three days. I very much appreciated the traditional purity and rusticity of this wine. With many Bordeaux houses having gone full out internationally styled, or leaning that way, this wine delivers a pleasant reminder of all the finest hallmarks of old school Bordeaux. Blackcurrant is the principal fruit, and this wine of the earth also features strong Cabernet Sauvignon markers, root vegetables, cedar, black farm soil, and strapping Graves terroir, including robust charred earth elements. Balanced, deeply satisfying, and made for food. Still evolving, and likely to continue for several years. It should last through 2028. A 91 point offering on a great day, and 90 points on all others.
