    July 17, 2019 - Nice and easy drinking, very representative 20 year old right bank. Nothing super complex or impressive here, but nothing out of place. I loved 1998 on the right bank, so I expected a bit more fruit. This was tasting just slightly past prime, mostly leather and olive and earth. I would drink up.

    November 4, 2018 - From magnum. Expressive and gorgeous on the nose. Elegant on the palate - good acidity, soft tannins, good fruit, medium intensity, medium complexity, decent length. 89-91

    September 27, 2018 - On the nose, stone fruit, bitter chocolate, some wet leather, tobacco, brick, pencil lead, violets, and olive. On the palate, this is classically structured and finely detailed. More savory aspects come to the front, olives, some leafiness, more bitter chocolate, pencil lead, more so than the stony fruits that seem to complete the story. There is breadth, but this is not an expansive, palate overwhelming wine. There is lift and freshness to it. There is depth but with focus. It still has the subtle leafiness on the back end. Quite long, very drinkable. It has layers and subtlety that draws you in. Nothing really stands out here, it just seems to all coalesce into a greater whole with and fruit, savory, and soil all coming together effortlessly. The balance is what excels here. An understated, beautiful wine that is not trying too hard to be anything but itself. It drinks like mineral water with a freshness and ease to each sip. At peak and I doubt it will improve, and may start to fade some time in the not distant future. Outstanding tonight. 91

    July 13, 2018 - So now, this is the reason why I started to drink Bordeaux wines. A Beauregard 2000, and I aas looking forward for this one. Rib-Eye of a pound on grill was the partner. Decidet to open and pour, decant would be possible afterwards. First nose: Fishmarket! WTF? Again: Fishmarket.
    Let em breave for 10minutes: wet horse-saddle... well, better, but by far not the smell I was expecting from my previous experience. After 45min: opend up and gave me what Ib2as expecting but not as nice I remember -more on a thirty way. But in the end: an typical bordeaux experience where the taste changed 4 times from the open thebbottle until the end. And now at the end, I ask why it wasnt a magnum as it goes only better....
