    July 4, 2020 - Tacked this onto a 67PM 2000 Bordeaux horizontal and this was by far the least forthcoming of all the wines and least interesting of the 6 wines.

    Better the second day, but even then it was drunk next to the remains of a bottle of Esprit de Pavie '09 and didn't come out as the preferred bottle...

    June 27, 2020 - Good, but not great, owing to it’s closed mature. When will this wine open for business again!?

    June 20, 2020 - Nose was fairly shut down most of the evening, with a little coaxing some of that mature Bordeaux character came out after a while. Palate was much more on point for me. Resolving tannin but still good presence, dark fruit, good acid, paired nicely with steak. 91-92

    June 19, 2020 - Not ready. Tracked over 4 nights. Hints of blackberry, cedar, soil, but never really gave up the goods. Another 5-10 years?

    May 23, 2020 - Garnet color and more pale toward edge of glass. Strong red berries and some oak and dusty taste. Bold tannins with plenty of acidity left.
    The body is medium/full with a pleasant and polished texture, however, there is plenty of acidity for further cellaring. I would guess another five years would not hurt this wine at all.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Calon-Segur) This showed not so great. Nose of redcurrants, peppercorns and stones. Not too expressive. Ripe, juicy and bright with some nice dense fruit and dark berr flavors. Huge tannins but sneaky length indicates greatness in the future but not today.
