    October 3, 2019 - Another winner of a bottle. Cork in excellent shape. 3 hr decant, just right. Tannins soft and supple. Probably 2 years left based on this bottle.

    September 13, 2019 - Was worried about the wine after several bad reviews. Fortunately tonights bottle was great. Strong floral and fruit hit me at the open, very pleasant nose. Wine was not together right away. 2.5 hrs of decanting and it is opening up very nicely. the fruit and floral nose has been replaced with a more subtle green pepper aroma. the tannins have calmed a lot, and although a little gritty at the end, the wine came together nicely. Even my wife, who hasn't been impressed with some of my recent vintage BDX auction purchases, said this wine was excellent. Very pleased with the wine, looking forward to my remaining 4 bottles. Paid $60 per 750ml bottle at auction. Worth every cent.

    August 13, 2019 - Tried with a 2001, this simply does not compare. If the 01 tastes bright, ripe and elegant, the 00 tastes unripe and clumsy. Of course it could have been a bad bottle, but considering how much more expensive it was and still is, the 00 should have been at least as good as the 01, which it isn't. The only hope for the future is the depth and weight, so fingers crossed, but if you come across some 01, save yourself some money and buy it.

    July 30, 2019 - Paired with a 1998, which was easily more approachable, but after an hour it was clear that the 2000 had more depth and length, with secondary notes (fruit, underbrush, a hint of tobacco) still emerging. In a great place

    (Chateau Sociando-Mallet Haut-Médoc) There is a lovely depth of aroma here, a nose full of leafy blackcurrant fruit, with a fresh and rather surprising seam of mint and a green peppercorn lift. Nice weight, softly composed, and still in possession of quite a grip and tannin beneath it all. There is very good substance here. The nose is a little awkward at present, but overall I still think this has much potential for the future. Very good indeed.
