    September 20, 2019 - The distinct floral edge shines brightly here. Silky, soft, refined and sensuous, the medium bodied show-stopper is dripping with truffle infused plums, cherry and bitter chocolate. This is quite nice to drink today, and it is only going to get better over the next decade or longer.

    June 7, 2019 - 1 hour decant. Drunk over the next 3 hours - but not sure it changed much
    Nice, could use a little more mid palate (maybe) for a higher score

    April 9, 2019 - I think the best '09 I've had so far. Tannins well integrated but still tight and showing great balance. Can go another 10 years I would think.

    February 24, 2019 - Dark red; open, dark berries; very agreeable, rich, sweet notes, light spices; open, ready and very good

    January 24, 2019 - Ikke like enorm som 09 drukket for et år siden, hakket bedre enn 12 drukket ifjor vår. Nydelig svartrød merlot-frukt med fin dybde, men snev av eik og ikke like komplett munnfølelse som forrige flaske. Men for all del..

    (Chateau Certan de May Pomerol) A Mouiex wine. A crimson hue, with a bluish rim. Beautifully crushed fruits on the nose. These follow through onto the palate, where they unfold to reveal a ripe and precise core of tannins which have quite a firm feel to them, along with vibrant and precise acidity. Lots of chewy substance here, but lots of pretty and well presented fruit character too. Impressively good.
