    February 21, 2019 - This needs an hour of air to really get going and shows a lush but pencil-heavy nose that almost seems left bank until it hits the palate in a plush, supple, truffley, cedary, raspberry wave; the tannins have almost entirely melted away. At its apogee; in no immediate danger but I wouldn't hold indefinitely.

    June 2, 2018 - Much better than the previous bottle. Popped and poured with no decanting was just perfect for this wine and bottle. Elegant, silky, soft and sexy, the wine is medium/full bodied, with a nose of truffle, cigar wrapper, rose petals, plums and cocoa, the wine finishes with finesse, refinement and earthy fruits. There is no reason to hold to this beauty hoping for more magic, this is at peak. If you are lucky enough to have a bottle, pop that cork!

    March 11, 2018 - Solid purple with brown tinge and garnet at the rim.

    Mature Bordeaux nose, with most of the aromas in the lower register - coffee, rich dark soil notes, warm meat, cherries, walnuts - but there is a connection to the higher register with vanilla oak and a rather pleasant eucalyptus topnote.

    On the palate the wine has an agreeable build-out, progressing from a tart red fruit character on the attack to a rich, full but not deep presence on the midpalate, echoing the notes present on the nose while expressing as no more than a middleweight - not a criticism, just an observation. Pleasant blood orange and persimmon skin flavors show a nice flash on the mid-palate, bringing a brightness not as evident on the nose.

    The finish has a touch of astringency and more acidity, and is the least appealing part of the palate - leading you to sip more to get to the luscious mid-palate experience.

    Drinking very well now.

    October 29, 2017 - Developing the softness across the palate of a good Pomerol, but only just entering middle age. Balanced white pepper and soil notes. More to come. 93+

    August 8, 2017 - Wine Dinner at Carbone (Carbone): Deep garnet core with some browning at the edge, clearly appeared older than its flight companion a 1982 Leoville las Cases, which was far deeper color and virtually no sign of age. The nose was filled with soft dark red fruits, earth, tar and smoke. Palate was so smooth and silky, clearly benefiting from both the 82 vintage richness wrapped in pomorol silk. Dark red fruits were a little muted, this was clearly not as well stored as the LLC which was fresher and younger. Good balance and complexity. On its own a very nice glass but suffered vs the night's offerings
