    April 27, 2019 - Decanted for 1 hour.
    Lovely nose with blackberry and leather, delicate but not overly complex.
    Very enjoyable on the palate, elegant rather than powerful. Fresh acidity, nicely balanced. Tannins well developed. Good length (balanced).
    This is not the most bombastic expression of Pauillac or GPL but a very precise and elegant one. I really enjoyed it.

    March 1, 2019 - This has hit full maturity and should stay here for the next 5 years plus. The vintage really belonged to the right bank, but this is perfectly pleasant with mature aromas of blackcurrant and leather. The tannin has sweetened and the palate has good balance and reasonable depth, but I do find it a little one dimensional, and not over complex. Likewise the finish is reasonable, but on the short side and light.

    February 20, 2019 - 13% alcohol. Good long dense cork with minimal wine penetration. Fairly dark colour with the onset of bricking and some thinning at the edge of the rim. Decanted an hour ahead.
    Very good nose, with more red than dark berries and some tobacco (fleetingly). The oak is fully integrated.
    The mouth is just as good, with uplifting acidity in the finish; no opulence here, but harmony aplenty. The tannins are fully resolved, but the wine has good grip nevertheless. No rush to drink.
    Not the most demonstrative of Pauillacs, but a very good one nevertheless. A success in the lean and understated mode.

    January 4, 2019 - Delicious. Rarely drink Bordeaux under 20-25 years age but this proves I should. Needed hour to open (but not decanted) but once there this was an elegant middle weight with blackberry fruits, freshness with spine of acidity, and a bit of complexity on finish. Altogether very drinkable and inviting without being obvious.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste) Vibrant nose of cassis, cherries, smoke, minerals and a touch of rubber. Sweet red fruits and a light raspberry element and great concentration. Chalky yet very well integrated tannins on the finish. Finish is a bit short but nonetheless a very enjoyable wine.
