    February 15, 2021 - impeccably stored, this was in the perfect place right now. seamless tannins, with a deliciously decadent core of black fruit and spice. The beginnings of maturity with leather and cigar, yet so much life ahead. I only wish i had more

    February 5, 2021 - 13%abv. Proper and classic left bank claret. Good to go from the start after decanting for sediment. This really sang from the glass and evolved over 4-5 hours to the end of the bottle. Notes of earth, undergrowth, cigar, mahogany, dusty libraries, red fruit, spice, pencil shavings all emerged over time. Great presence but light in the mouth and some creaminess of texture. Some welcome charm too (unlike many Bdx). Great value.

    March 18, 2020 - Nicely aged and a good representation of a St. Estephe. Smooth and luscious with flowers and earth and long lasting tingly tannin. Still pretty big wine; will do well for another 10 years.

    June 21, 2018 - Monthly tasting club "The Tasting Club"; Better Bordeaux of 15+ years old (@ My place): Beautiful and mature bouquet with tobacco and some rustic impressions. On the palate chocolate, red and dark berries, cherries, good acidity and soft tannin. Still very much alive and beautiful.

    April 1, 2018 - Tannins not quite resolved but supple with food. Cabernet driven and food friendly. Pop those corks.
