    March 2, 2019 - Popped and poured. Medium garnet color. Nose of cassis, red currant, cedar, tobacco, floral notes. Deliciously accessible layers of currant, leather, and grippy concentrated plum fruit coursing on the palate with surprising richness despite a lithe frame. Moderate acidity and palpable but softened tannin leading to a long finish of crunchy red fruit, tobacco, and a hint of green leaf. Full of life and with definite upside, this wine is in buoyant adolescence.

    February 26, 2019 - Classic 1995 Bordeaux, soft, drinking perfectly, tertiary notes (leather) but lots of primary fruit. This is in its prime drinking window and will go on for years. It is quite full bodied, silky generous fruit, very typical GPL. Still plenty of structure to provide grip and interest.

    February 18, 2019 - Tasted blind at a Commanderie event. The most complete wine of the night, shows again what a great QPR-overachiever GPL is. Wonderful nose of mature Medoc with wet forest floor, pine, dark fruit, spices, barnyard, Very good structure for a 2007. Kudos. 94+

    Clear edge, ruby leading to a garnet core.
    The nose is incredibly intoxicating. A mix of ripe red and black fruit, new leather, with a touch of pencil shavings. Definitely some ripeness here.
    This is unbelievable on the palate. Medium body, moderate acidity and just a touch of dusty tannin. Loads of fruit lead to a extended hedonistic finish.
    Not what I’d call a classic Bordeaux but wow, this is delicious and still incredibly young.
    It will be hard to resist opening anytime soon, but some more time in the cellar should bring out more nuance. Long life ahead, 15+ years easily.

    February 14, 2019 - Dark red fruited with an abundance of herbal notes and a touch of tobacco and cedar. Very good acidity, with nicely integrated tannins. Drinking well now albeit younger than its age. No rush to drink. If there's a quibble with this wine, it's that the green notes are perhaps a bit too prominent, obscuring the bright fruit underneath.

    75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.
