Community Tasting Notes 95

    July 3, 2021 - Having a group of wine friends over for my birthday to blind taste a few Bordeaux 2000 while BBQ'ing. First wine and one that got everyone on the wrong foot. Very clear Medoc nose, no one guessed right bank. The palate has soft, polished tannins, medium- body and marked acidity. A very elegant and drinkable food wine, very popular today, for the classic claret lover. Nose 96, Palate 94. Peak, drink up over the next few years.

    March 5, 2021 - P&P. the wine is quite dark, no noticeable evolution sign. the nose is complex, textbook bordeaux, fresh dark berries, gooseberries, spices, (ripe) green pepper, earth, aristocratic. The palate is fresh, medium body, good length. rounded tannins that are drying up a little. Overall this is a good wine which has not peaked, but a bit boring.

    December 20, 2020 - Remains dark; fresh, lean, red fruits; mirrored on palate, supple, refreshing acidity; breezy, clean finish. Fair length.

    October 24, 2020 - Drinking beautifully. In its prime. 4 years after last bottle much more perfume of raspberry and floral. Deep blackberry depth in mouth but still elegant. Glad I got one more.
