    May 14, 2021 - (Decanted for two hours)
    Deep red colour with a nice and warm nose showing wet soil, dried herbs and red berries together with some minerals. Nice and with smoothing tannins on the warm and fruity palate showing red berries, chocolate and with a nice and balanced smoothing finish where a nice austerity gives structure.

    February 4, 2015 - Cork was pulled and a small taste poured off an hour before dinner and the cork was reinserted. Notes of leather, cedar and black fruits. Light in body and completely integrated with a little bit of fruit left. Dries out across the palate, becoming slightly austere through the finish. Slightly better with my venison loin than on its own, but this probably peaked a decade ago (IF this is a representative sample).

    July 28, 2011 - Chateau bottle held 3 years. Decanted 1/2 hour. Amazing how a 13 year old second wine from a basic vintage can still place you right in St Julien on the first sip. Medium bodied, perhaps a touch green or young vines, but it comes across as bright, with graphite and blackberry, some leather and a touch of animal secondary. Medium length. Many wines at 3 times the price have lasted only half as long. Very good.

    July 25, 2010 - no surprises, very pleasant, could still age for a little longer

    September 25, 2009 - Popped & decanted. Similar to last bottle - very satisfactory!
