Community Tasting Notes 2

    December 27, 2017 - Medium bodied, with bright, red fruits, olives, espresso and thyme are out in front. There is a bit too much freshness here, which is probably not going to lessen with age as the fruit fades with time. I'd opt for drinking this wine sooner than later.

    June 1, 2009 - Bordeaux 2008 (Bordeaux): A slightly jammy nose but a tasty and nicely textured palate, good overall with some cherry. A supple drink. 87-90

    (Clos des Jacobins St Emilion) A rather hot style of nose here, volatile and balsamic, with roasted fruit and a tinge of burnt coffee. The palate is firm, with a very solid texture, hot cherry fruit and plenty of extracted tannin. This wine has a lot of substance and rather low acidity.
