    September 30, 2019 - Firm, crisp and bright red fruits with a stoic nature create the backbone of the wine. Very classic in nature, the wine is firm, tannic, full-bodied and crunchy with a tannic bite. With its tobacco, cedar, cigar box, forest floor, herb and red berry perfume, the wine is more interesting on the nose than the palate. Giving this a few hours of air will help, but the nature of 1995 vintage is strong here.

    September 28, 2019 - Similar to notes prior to mine a fine and delicious wine. No sign of age only elegance. Hard to predict the future of this wine, I have a second down stairs but easily several more years. I followed the do not decant from an earlier note and just opened and let stand about 90 minutes prior to consumption. Dinner for 6, everyone loved it.

    September 7, 2019 - Black fruit with good weight, better length, ending with a slightly rugged finish with almost all tannins softened, or at least close. Not the most complex of wines, but certainly enjoyable.

    July 28, 2019 - 30 min decant and ready for prime time. Long finish, great nose, relative bargain. Love love love

    July 25, 2019 - Stunning bottle - so complex, completely mature with uncommon equilibrium. Meaty, iron ore, mocha, leather, dark berry fruit. Supple texture, but its a classic Bordeaux tannic structure. Classic Paulliac that convinces (in a major way) through balance, proportion, and sheer refinement.
