Community Tasting Notes 10

    April 27, 2013 - Consumed from the bottle over a period of five to seven hours.

    Complex, medium bodied, well balanced and youthful. Appeared much younger than a 1998.

    January 22, 2012 - Double decanted and poured. Garnet red, yellow rim, 4,5. Open mature classic right bank bouquet, complex, sweetness. Totally harmonious on the palate, perfect balance between tannin, acid and fruit, elegant and with finesse. Long finish. Not a top St.Emilion but it is perfect right now but will hold for at least five years.

    January 29, 2011 - Decanted and poured. Beautiful garnet red, orange rim, 5. Reserved but mature nose with some classic notes of forest floor and red fruit. Balanced taste. Drink now. Not much to wait for...

    March 20, 2010 - Mature garnet red. Very fine bouquet, forest floor, pencil, discrete spice, red berries. Elegant taste showing the same elements matched by rounded tannin. Perfect Bdx in total harmoni and balance. Wish I more often will come across this kind of wine. Drink now - 5 years.
