    February 8, 2019 - Endearing bouquet of smokiness and dark chocolate, opening up to fresh cassis. Dark fruits, initial dark chocolate, almost coffee with seductive bitterness on the palate. There is depth and complexity, especially compared to the pontet 2008 which was drank alongside. Round, balanced and energetic. Graphite, slight earthy aftertaste which lingers. Ready to drink now but feel this will get better with more time. Feel this is better than the 2007.

    January 26, 2019 - Excellent wine that would have lived years more yet. 13.5% alc. 2nd growth Bordeaux.
    Colour: deep black berry
    Bouquet: rich earthy, mint, leather, black fruits and olives, cereal, coffee
    Palate: similar to bouquet, opens out to a big wine, balanced, dry and dusty, long finish, big soft puckers tannins. Black coffee and leather dominate other flavours. Nice drinking. So seamlessly smooth and yet potent.

    October 5, 2018 - Black fruits, earthy minerals, spices with big tannins and a not unpleasant bitterness that is likely from torched oak. Definitely can be aged longer.

    September 29, 2018 - Way too young to drink but has great potential. Delicious wine almost chewy with solid fruit/tannin/acid balance and long finish. Give it 5 years or more.
