    November 20, 2021 - Decanted for two hours. The after breath is stunning. Full-bodied and lithe at the same time, with many meridians of flavor and nuance. Black and red currants, chiseled rock, ramen, green tobacco leaf, rainy forest and flower shop. The finish sails on and the refinement is there at a young age. Gorgeous, but this could use a little more time. After many hours, the nose really opens up; there is so much lovely dark fruit and cassis on the palate. Drink 2024 -.

    September 18, 2021 - Quite tight at the moment, and not showing much of its true potential, if you are sitting on any bottles, wait at least 6 -8 years. At that point, all the gorgeous, ripe, sweet, fresh cassis and floral character and lifted, red berry palate should be in top form.

    April 9, 2021 - My fourth vintage of PC (2002, 2005, 2012 and 2017) and this is maybe the best vintage.
    2005 was very good, the 2012 was big, and I expected something big for this vintage as well, but this is actually quite elegant.
    A very traditional, refined, high quality Pauillac. A nice surprise. 93-94 pts.
    Should reach 95.

    December 29, 2020 - From 375mL. Medium garnet with some clearing at the edges. Opens with a nose of cassis, plums, stony minerality, then some floral elements, anise, and leather emerging with time and air. Tannins are chewy, layered and not as massive as I would have expected for such a young Pauillac. Good acidity and medium body in the palate. Still very young, and definitely needs another 5-10 years to open up and reach its full potential but still very enjoyable in its youth. I like where this is going.
