    May 20, 2019 - Incredibly balanced wine that could most likely go another 10-15 years.

    April 18, 2019 - Right upon PNP you could tell that this was going to be special. Sweet truffle, leather and plum aromas wafted off the neck of the bottle. I allowed it to open for approximately 40-minutes in the decanter

    Nose: Perfumed, huge nose of Cherry, truffle, cedar, plum, chocolate, woodsmoke and roasted berry notes. Precise and expressive of Pomerol in a very indulgent way. Palate: Broad and layered in the mouth giving cherry, plum skin, shaved truffles, chocolate and cedar. Touches of raspberry sauce and floral notes as well. Complex and multi-dimensional to the final sip. Finish: remains resonant bringing back many mid-palate notes for well over 45-seconds on the finish.

    This was consumed from 375 and had spent much of its life in an excellent cellar. These have years ahead.

    March 31, 2019 - certainly the most wonderful bouquet but not sure the wine matches it - showing its age

    March 12, 2019 - Fabulous nose! (A/A+), Gorgeous palate (A-/A). Tasted blind.

    January 3, 2019 - Four Chardonnays and a Merlot (Trelissick Crescent, Ngaio, Wellington, New Zealand): Seductive, creamy, smokey, fleshy and focused. Gorgeous expression of Pomerol. Ripe dark plum skin aromas and flavour. Sweet and smokey oak perfect fries the fruit. This is a class act, without a hair out of place. Drinking at full maturity, this is spectacularly refined.
