    August 16, 2021 - Probably better than a 92 rating right now. This wine is in a great drink window. Decanted for about two and a half hours. Classic Pauillac. I have often purchased Red Bordeaux with 89-90 ratings and found that many outperformed their price (and the pro ratings) after 10 to 15 years. This wine is a classic case of that phenomenon. It is now 18 years old. I originally bought the case 2006. I see that the average auction price for this one is up about 33% year over year. So.....the word is out on the development of this wine.

    March 14, 2021 - This was a fabulous bottle of wine. Sadly the last of the case. Decanted 2hr before serving with roast beef. All the best things you can say about claret, were on show. Also not high in alcohol at only 13% abv.

    March 8, 2021 - The same as two bottles consumed in 2020. One and a half hour decant. It is outperforming its price point and original ratings. I am a drinker of this one right now.

    November 13, 2020 - Zu Cordonbleu und Kartoffelsalat. Schön fruchtige Nase nach dunklen Beeren, Cassis und etwas Eukalyptus. Am Gaumen wunderbar fruchtig, jugendlich: Beerenfrucht, Wildkirsche, Lakritze und Zedernholz. Schöner Körper und ansprechender Abgang. Wunderbare Trinkreife - kann aber wohl noch ein paar Jährchen ruhen.

    September 20, 2020 - Similar to a bottle consumed last May. Decanted for one and a half hours. This bottle had a little more going on fruit-wise.......so gave it a slightly higher rating than was the case with the last bottle.

    July 5, 2020 - toujours des bouchons de pas très bonne qualité qui ont tendance à se couper en 2.
    Robe : profonde, avec des reflets tuilés sur le disque. On de belles larmes grasses.
    Nez : dominante tertiaire sur le sous-bois, la boite à cigares. Mais on perçoit encore des fruits noires à l'agitation du verre
    En bouche : les tanins sont fondus, très arrondis. on retrouve de la confiture de mûres, des arômes d'humus et de cigare. On a un belle persistance aromatique.
    Ces bouteilles se sont bien mieux présentées que la dernière
    Très bien +
