    August 26, 2021 - Drank alongside the SHL ‘05 (95 pts). This was thin on opening but started to bloom after two hours in the decanter. Better than expected given the vintage.

    March 12, 2021 - As one would expect. Not a great amount of depth and complexity.... but a fine wine representative of St. Julien. went very well with roast chicken. This wine should hold for a few years yet, but i doubt it will become meaningfully better. Drink up

    December 12, 2020 - Surprisingly ripe and appealing for the vintage while remaining classically styled. Cassis combined with strawberries and cherries on the nose, cut blackcurrant branches, mint. Fresh, cool, precise. The fruit gets a bit muddy on the palate, with a bit of a roasted character. But the balance is good, there’s decent density of flavour and length, and the finish is pleasantly persistent. At peak but no rush to drink.

    December 11, 2020 - Classic notes of left bank claret. Some mushroom, farmyard funk encased with smokiness and underlying black fruit. Not terribly long or nuanced but full of joy.
