    July 20, 2021 - Classic Bordeaux. Drinking well

    June 13, 2021 - Very clean closure. Dark inky ruby in colour despite its 16 years. An austere nose - reticent black fruit with a distinct graphite. Generally cassis on the palate with quite dominant soft grained tannins. As with all the 05’s the steely backbone is a given - one just hopes the fruit holds up long enough to see the tannins to a harmonious resolution.

    May 9, 2021 - Surprisingly forward for the vintage. Soft, fine tannins but I was expecting more from this. Medium length, not much in the way of classic Pauillac notes coming through. Fruit felt a bit subdued for both the vintage and appellation. Cant see it getting any better and I don’t see this becoming a long lived wine. Drink over the next few years

    April 23, 2021 - Very acceptable claret. Nose OK, dark fruit. the palate was firm and went with the roast pigeon well. Well rounded tannins and dark fruit. Medium length taste
