    September 18, 2019 - Bordeaux night (Indianapolis, IN): Very pretty - very fresh, bright dark fruited flavours augmented with more savoury earthiness. Not especially complex, but very easy to drink with the tannin more gentle than I expected and the acidity giving it a nice sense of freshness.

    March 16, 2019 - Smooth as silk, savoury and cheese notes - to me, just perfect. Did not feel past its prime at all. A real treat.

    February 5, 2019 - Drank a half bottle. Very ripe and juicy, full bodied and tannin fuly dissolved. Tea like flavor, coffee, chocolate. Very smooth and long finish.

    November 21, 2018 - This bottle perhaps slightly oxidised and drank next to a 2002 Leoville Barton which completely surpassed it in every way. Brownish bricking and thinning with leather bouquet. Lacking fruit definition more redcurrant cherry and unripe red plum. A bit short and very dry. Just no life left in it sorry to say.

    September 29, 2018 - Drank a Magnum size. Dark brown in color, ripe and still very juicy red and dark fruits intermixed together on the nose and palate. A bit gamey initially but very sweet with more air time, with hints of woods, tea, but still lots of berries behind. Very good wine and drinking very well. Drink now though it can be kept for more years but I don't think it will have further development.

    (Chateau Clerc-Milon Pauillac) Very youthful hue. Dense, classic, dark, slightly sooty nose. A little roasted even. Lovely tannins pervading through the palate. Big, very structured, youthful, pure concentrated and intense. The tannins come to dominate at the finish though. A lovely wine destined for greatness. Needs five to ten years cellar time.
