    May 19, 2019 - A bit of a scare when cork was revealed with some mold on top, but sound in the bottle. Quick double decant, resting 3 hours in the bottle. Pale ruby, just a hint of brick dust. On the nose, blackberry, cherry, vanilla, with just a hint of (pleasant) funk - something truffley. A bit of leather, but not at all stodgy. Coats the mouth, lovely feel. Very well balanced. Medium+ body, medium+ finish.

    March 2, 2019 - Scented with cassis, earth, meaty notes, figs, truffles, milk chocolate. Very balanced on the palate with a long persistent finish. Multi layered with good ripe fruit. Great success. What a treat to have tasted this.

    February 7, 2019 - From an Enomatic sample. Lovely sweet nose with a raisiny touch, licorice, tobacco and leather. Lean but with the fruit still around. Great finish. More life in this of course but it drinks perfect now.

    February 2, 2019 - Very dark colour, barely perceptible aging notes. Intense nose, with cedar, mature red berries, ink, mentholic notes. The palate confirms my suspicion that this well structured and elegant bottle is only just getting there. Medium to full bodied, complex, subtle, ample freshness and minerality on the palate, fine cask notes, chocolate, tobacco, some herbal notes, sous-bois, cocoa in the background. Judging by the tannins this excellent wine will further gain - as many of the 1998ies by the way. For the less patient: consider decanting a good two hours ;-).

    January 12, 2019 - Darker in color. Immediately appeared to be quite thin with no depth or charm on his nose. But then, as the temperature increased in the glass, Segur began to move. Earthy mocha tones appear. Warmer fruit compared to Barton 98. The wine is now charming. On taste still not as deep and perhaps not so complicated but, most importantly, it’s good! More fruit and mocha in the mouth. Some drying tannins
