    August 4, 2021 - The nose jumps out of the glass with raspberry, cherry, plum, some blackcurrant, vanilla, cedar, dark chocolate, pencil lead, liquorice, old leather, and some herb (is it thyme?). Ripe, taught tannins and a long finish. There is some good concentration and it will be interesting to see how this develops.

    June 30, 2021 - At our Commanderie dinner of Second Wines(1995 & 2005 Pavillon Rouge, 2005 Bahans Haut Brion, 2009 Croix de Beaucaillou and 2009 Reserve de la Comtesse).

    Early drinking part of the drinking range. Lots of potential and depth. Should be better in 4-5 years. Drink 2025-33.

    June 30, 2021 - Just outstanding! This bottle has been in the cellar for several years waiting for my retirement. Very nice from the nose with subtle fruit, pencil shavings, and bit of cedar through the full finish. Completely integrated. Garnet color and a silky texture to the experience. Drinking well now for sure, will probably integrate the tannins a bit more, but not sure it will improve much above where it sits today. I should have bought a couple bottles when I had the chance at a lower price point. Even at current price point - this is worth the price. Enjoy!

    April 9, 2021 - Did not decant properly so will not rate. Only comment from drinking a few 2005s lately is that the vintage seems to have closed recently so I will revisit in a couple of year my 2005 bottles.
