    September 16, 2020 - Quite a dark colour; the palate is dry, slightly earthy, with mature blackcurrant and plum flavours and a cedary element. Definitely a wine for food, as it is a little austere on its own, but it has depth. Should still keep.

    August 28, 2020 - Really enjoyed my first bottle of this wine. The cigar and tobacco was backed up with medium red fruit and forest floor notes. Good acidity and silky texture. Moderate finish. Fun masculine wine and paired beautifully with lamb.

    August 9, 2020 - Huge step up from the 95 La Louviere I had just a week or so ago.

    Lovely dark color, looked far younger than it really was. Serious concentration of cigar, tobacco leaf, old wood, and moss on the nose. The palate was rich and compelling. The earthiness completely dominated any notes of dark fruit. Tannins not fully resolved. While it started off a bit overpowering on the tobacco notes, I was really drawn to it. Still a long life ahead for this. Great wine that keeps you thinking. Lots going on here for a somewhat modest, yet very distinguished wine.

    My friend who shared this paired it with lamb, and I agree that this wine would really benefit with meat. Great showing. At the price we got it for, buy buy buy.

    August 1, 2020 - I was expecting more from this. has backbone and has fruit but tends a little to much to the bitter side for me to give it a higher rating. Not sure if this is an off bottle or it's just in an awkward phase.

    (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.
