    November 19, 2020 - Decanted for three hours before drinking. Medium body. Bouquet of black fruit and slight railroad tie. Palate matches the bouquet, tannins nearly completely gone. Enjoyable, but a bit weak at this point. Overall past its prime and likely declining. Drink now.

    April 18, 2019 - Decanted one hour. Medium body. Blackberry nose and licorice palate, medium tannin that settled in rather quickly. 2nd day: smoke, dark licorice and asphalt to the nose with blackberries and perfect tannin to the palate. Very pleasant, but held back to the palate. Perhaps in its prime now, or close to it. 3rd day: licorice creosote on the nose and similar to the palate, tannins beautifully incorporated.

    February 1, 2019 - My go to!! Great value! 45+ minute decant and could use more. Dark cherry color. Cherry, eucalyptus, and cedar on the nose. Chewy, deep wine. More fruit forward that other vintages, but has great texture. Medium finish. Love it!

    April 29, 2017 - Saint Emilion 2000 vintage: 15 years in bottle (Grill Room at the Rosewood): Another nice surprise was wine #10, Château Dassault, which scored 92 points in my book and had people reaching – yet again – for their notepads to write the name down. Although the tannin was a bit hard, it never dried, and had quite a bit of juicy mid palate fruit as well, if not as opulent as, say, Angélus, for example. But it costs - what? - 10 times less than Angélus? An excellent QPR.

    April 19, 2017 - Comprehensive 2000 St Emilion Blind Tasting (The Grill Room at the Rosewood DC): Wine 10 - Very ripe black fruit driven nose, lactic and fine dust. Excellent concentration, silky, bright acidity, dry tannins and a medium to long finish with dry tannins that ringers. Impressive showing but need time to resolve the tannins.
