    February 17, 2020 - Proper Bordeaux, still tight and quite austere – young. Nice bramble fruit supported by a high acidity high tannin wine. Tertiary notes of saddle and hedge row beginning to emerge. Long and complex. Try again in 2030.

    January 2, 2020 - A lovely bottle that has come a long way since the last bottle tasted in 2011. Harmony and weightless depth are this bottle’s calling cards. Classic cassis and stones linger over the palate. Wonderful. Should continue to improve for 5 to 10 more years and then hold well on its balance. Really enjoyed this one. (94)

    January 1, 2020 - Decanted 3 hours. Dark fruit, mineral, decent finish. Seems like it is in its drinking window, but not showing a lot of secondaries. This was good, but fell a bit short of expectations. It came later in the lineup so maybe not fair but I was a little disappointed. A-

    December 17, 2019 - Classic with forest and leather tar notes. Needs some time in decanter but ready

    October 3, 2019 - This is now sweet and complex and fully integrated. Medium-bodied with excellent terroir-driven flavors of warm asphalt, dark red fruits and smoky minerals. Best after about 2 hours open with a beautiful finish with notes of sweet tobacco and red spice. Very ready to go but will hold.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Chateau Haut Brion) More fruit on the nose than the '02. Seems to be in an early drinking style with cassis and cherry fruit on the nose. Extremely forward and lush on the palate with high acid and a trace of heat. Good Haut Brion but the least favorite of the first flight.
