    April 21, 2019 - Nice, ripe, refined. Good mature nose, lots of nuance. No green meanies, just soft red fruit and the last few soft tannins. A pleasant surprise!

    January 22, 2019 - Delicious ripe dark fruit, well balanced, clean. Ready now. I’m really liking the under rated 2001 and 2002 Bordeaux.

    January 2, 2019 - Bouchon pas entamé. De mémoire
    Au Nez sur l'humus, la terre et le cuir
    En bouche délicate, tanins fondus, bonne longueur.
    Très bien

    December 23, 2018 - Surprising vibrant nose of fresh red fruit. On the palate cherries with back notes of tobacco, dark chocolate and a long finish of dark plum fruit. Again surprisingly young feeling for a 2002. The maturity sweetness and acidity feels just right, so i would not keep it longer. This beat the expectations.

    (Chateau Giscours Margaux) Another dark and glossy wine, with not a hint of maturity looking at the colour, although the nose presents an appealing array of aromas suggesting nice development. Quite classic, bloody, meaty, iron-edged style, with a full, ripe, creamy character on the palate. Lovely structure, aromatic and floral character with a gravelly edge. Good acidic freshness. This has excellent potential. I prefer it to the 2004.
