    September 21, 2022 - Enjoyed from my cellar with grilled lamb chops. initial tasting indicated tannins would benefit from decanting. after one hour of decanting, tannins smoothed out moderately but we’re still quite stout. I expect this vintage should continue aging a bit. tobacco on the nose, earth and minerality on the finish.

    July 23, 2022 - Pulled cork night before and decanted midday to open this young St-Julien as much as possible. A hefty claret with just a whiff of inviting barnyard on the first nose and taste. Hearty but went well with salad and soup dinner.

    July 8, 2022 - Espresso, licorice, smoke, black and red currants, blackberries, and roses create the nose. On the palate, the wine is powerful, lush, full-bodied, rich, deep, and long. The fruits are sweet, ripe, opulent, flamboyant, and attention-seeking. They are also pure, fresh, clean, and intense. There are no hard edges at any step. The lingering finish al close to seamless. It is almost impossible to put your glass down without taking another sip. This is stunning. But as good as it is now, it is only going to get better over the next few decades. Drink from 2027-2050.

    March 27, 2022 - This has come a long way from the first bottle I tasted in 2015. Still a long way to go though
