    January 3, 2022 - In a nice place. Blueberries and pencil aromas. Palate is fresh but a bit lean (2008 signature). Classic left bank. Good balance.

    January 1, 2022 - In a delightful place and showing classic mature claret notes - blackcurrant, blackberry, cooked plums, leather, and cedar. Definitely edging in that leathery mature direction well ahead of Leoville. This will not have nearly as long a life, but the structure is in a nice place with some fine, sooty tannins. I do think the acid and tannins will outlive the fruit, however, so probably one to drink over the next five years or so.

    November 12, 2021 - This has well structured blackcurrant fruit, typical claret elegance and some fine tannin. Drinkable now with a good airing, but will improve over the next 3 to 5 years as the tannin is absorbed.

    From a half bottle.

    July 24, 2021 - Nez principalement sur le cassis qui n'évoluera pas beaucoup à l'aération.
    Bouche avec des tannins très accrocheurs à l'ouverture mais qui laisseront place à un grain plus soyeux à l'aération. L'ensemble est assez linéaire
    Finale un peu ferme marquée par les tanins.

    Pas désagréable, mais cela manque de complexité. A voir avec l'âge !
