    December 2, 2021 - Decanted 2+ hours. A very good young Bordeaux with a fair price. I wanted to try one before it shuts down. Already a very good wine and I'm pretty sure that it will be much better with 10 more years in the cellar. 93+ pts. at the moment with a lot of potential.

    November 28, 2021 - Mini 2018 bdx horizontal from 375, tasted single blind.

    Wine 2:
    C: Lovely crystalline ruby-tinged garnet in the glass.
    N: Effusive floral aromatics, seductive and you can smell it from across the room.
    P: Wow this is nice, very juicy acid with high-toned red fruit, a touch of cedar, and although it has youthful exuberance, the core is ethereal and light, so supple and charming, I let out an "ahhhhhhhh!". Back of the palate shows blonde tobacco and red pepper, with a finish of tar, flowers, and ultra-fine but sneakily potent tannins. A hint of heat. All of this reminds me of Barbaresco.

    95+. Based on the aromatics and finesse, I guess Rauzan-Segla.
    (bottled under diam 30)

    November 28, 2021 - Fantastic freshness and purity of red fruit. Very balanced acidity and great length. Nice minerality alongside unobtrusive oak treatment. Liked it more than the Maybach we drank it with. Looking forward to seeing this further evolve. Bravo.

    November 27, 2021 - The nose on this wine in absolutely gorgeous. I can smell it jumping out of the glass two feet away. Wow. What an amazing wine this is. Hard to resist right now

    November 27, 2021 - This is so young but already extraordinary. Very Graves. Pretty red raspberry and cranberry flavors on the nose, accented by crushed rock and anise. Rich, but poised and elegant, with zippy acidity and a smooth but tart finish. Stunning, and perhaps my favorite '18 I've tasted yet.
