    June 3, 2021 - Lacking a bit of oomph and length to score higher but you wont be disappointed if you like aged BDX - cedar, lead pencil, black fruit. Nice in its own way even if not a blockbuster.

    January 27, 2021 - This is mostly just for vertical completion. I probably should have opened years ago, but it likely wasn't better as it had good condition and wasn't a poor wine in any aspect. It was just acceptable and still a decent and correct cab-focused wine. Had the normal cigar box and although fruit was diminished, it had the black currants still there. Just nothing special and less fresh in the finish than the next 3 vintages showed. Drink 'em if ya got 'em.

    May 3, 2017 - Chateau Pontet-Canet Dinner (La Trompette, Chiswick): Developed with mushroom, soil with underlying dried red fruit, tannins resolved, attractive spicy notes, fresh acidity, lean but with sufficient fruit and a medium/good length finish. Very good, certainly better than expected. Drink up. ***1/2

    November 8, 2014 - This wine has seen its peak already but still nicely drinkable. Currants, cherry and a slight hint of herbs on the nose, rather flat on the palate, though. It clearly benefited from decanting.
