    October 9, 2021 - ROME on The Ridge: From a previously unopened case, a real treat with the magnificent beef.

    October 8, 2021 - I'd bought a case of this on release, but for some reason it remained untouched until now. I'd had a bottle of the Grand Vin from this vintage and it was spectacular, so hopes were high that this would have survived. It did more than that: Perfectly secure cork and surprising amount of youngish fruit jumped out of the bottle on opening. Left in a decanting cradle to slow ox for about 4 hours and then decanted. Perfectly mature, balanced Bordeaux. I have a large group coming to my home this weekend and 3 more bottles will go down the hatch with some Wagyu beef. Here's hoping the others are as lovely as this 1st of 12 was.

    January 23, 2021 - Perfect garnet color. After half an hour in the glass perfect balance with very smooth red fruited and mature aromatics. Great balance and tastet at least ten years younger than it is. Only aspect were the rather grippy tannins and lacking some intensity as the nose was rather shy even after 3h. Delicious but loosing focus.

    December 30, 2020 - Very fun Margaux night - '86 Pavillon vs '00 Palmer. 4hrs of decanting for the latter before dinner and could have even used more air! Both bottles were great although the Pavillon is just a touch past peak and the Palmer needs some more time. That said, both were still enjoyable!
