Community Tasting Notes 68

  • LWI wrote: flawed

    September 2, 2020 - Very angular and difficult to taste now. Some fruits here, but unbalanced and violent.

  • Overlook Likes this wine:

    August 29, 2020 - Dark and spicy fruit, black currant, blueberries, some tones of oak. Firm tannins in the finish. Not very developed. Very fine concentration, will keep for many years to come.

  • Shugs_Claret Likes this wine: 94 points

    July 8, 2020 - Cassis and plum on the nose with hints of blueberry and mushroom. The palate consists of well concentrated dark red fruits and notes of cedar. The tannins are fine and complemented by generous acidity to round out a classic Ducru. Still improving.

    February 21, 2020 - aromatically pretty but a bit more oak than woodsy camphor I expected
    Palate seemed thin but correct, like it was a radio turned down low...was it me or the bottle

    no real change w 2 hours air
    Not sure, so no rating

    February 9, 2020 - This one is on the young side. For now, I would let it breath for 6 hours to gain weight.

    Agreed with the comment here, "With time then the cherries and black fruits start to come through. And intensity picks up."
