    January 24, 2020 - Leder, Torf, Sauerkirsche, Schokolade, in der Nase torfig, etwas über den Zenit - bestätigt sich aber nicht.

    January 20, 2020 - Perfectly mature Bordeaux, drinking beautifully. Dark color in glass, with red and black fruit (plum?) in a smoky elegant and smooth texture.

    November 29, 2019 - Never disappoints. Dark red in glass. Left bank nose, however not overly tarred like the paulliacs

    I believe this wine will be a long lasting 99

    August 14, 2019 - Consistent with last year, this is in its prime drinking window. It is a surprisingly delicate wine with blackberry, leather, and cedar prominent. Everything is well balanced and the tannin has softened sufficiently but it lacks the depth and complexity of the more prestigious vintages. However, it is a very enjoyable drink which needs minimal time in the decanter, and should stay here for the next five years or so.

    July 22, 2019 - Seems to be at peak evolution, as change day by day over 36 hours was not significant. Not fully tertiary in flavor, it still has some strong fruit components, but those are carried along by more rustic flavors. Quite honestly, a little underwhelming, but a fine bottle in any case.

    (Château Ducru-Beaucaillou) Tight nose; tight and young tasting, tart cherry and tannic palate, needs a lot of time
