    June 6, 2021 - Double decanted 5 hours, at first wine seemed to be slightly tainted then after 5 minutes of aeration in the glass, taint notes had disappeared. Deep ruby color with a slight brick rim, still seems young. Rich and ripe, forest floor, mushrooms, graphite, red berries, pencil shavings ending on a lengthy powerful finish. I must correct the drink by 2018 drinking window in wine searcher. This wine is drinking perfectly now but has enough meat on the bones to last another 5 years if not more.

    May 15, 2021 - Promisingly open and attractive nose, the palate is extracted, filled with bright and clear cut red berry driven flauvors complemented by cedar, cassis and pencil shavings, hints of vanillin, a classic Pauillac taste profile indeed, tannins are present but the ample fruit component together with the good acidity make this a well structured and sturdy claret. Really enjoyable now and has years left in it.

    April 4, 2021 - Purchased on release. Opened for my son’s 25th birthday. I wasn’t sure what to expect based on other reviews but this was excellent. Cork was in perfect shape, so that was a good sign from the start. Fruit still hanging on and as he described it, “very dusty” on the finish, and it didn’t fade as the night went on. An excellent 25 year old Bordeaux especially considering that it’s not a top-of-the-food-chain chateau.

    February 7, 2021 - Purchased at release. The cork was soaked and I was worried about the wine. Very tight initially. Vanilla, menthol, black fruit, eucalyptus, herbal. Slightly acidic in the finish. Showed more barnyard character with time.
    Compared to previous bottles, clearly flawed.

    December 5, 2020 - Over the hill, alas. Fruit is gone, and little backbone.
