    November 26, 2022 - International Congress of Chinese Cuisine and Wine 2022 Masterclasses (Goodwood Park Hotel, Singapore): Medium ruby. Obvious freshness on the palate with a long finish and the wine of the flight.

    November 26, 2022 - Tasted this wine at the Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Masterclass during the International Congress of Chinese Cuisine & Wine at the Goodwood Park Hotel.

    Some bitterness in the body, with some beautiful, almost poetic movement along the lines. Lyrical and picturesque.

    For this vintage, it is a bridge to the past.

    November 26, 2022 - Fragrant and deep nose of cassis, leather, spice box and dark chocolate. Delicious. The palate is much more expressive than what the nose suggested. Savoury meats, ripe black fruits, smoked spices and river stones from entry to finish. Full-bodied structure. Good acidity and concentration of dry juicy fruit. Tannins are fine and integrated well to the elements. Seamless transition to a lingering and layered finish. Ready to drink in one hour in the decanter. This wine will last for decades with proper cellaring.

    October 15, 2022 - Decanted four an hour and a half in the cellar and tannins smoothed out nicely. Tobacco, limestone & blackberry. Moderate finish. Paired with grilled steaks.

    August 31, 2022 - Just a gorgeous rendition of this wine. Vibrant, nuanced, with layers of fruit and great balance. Tannins are friendly and this is very drinkable today. Hard to believe it gets better but it probably will
