    September 5, 2019 - Cranberry color. Red currant, cassis, and plum fruit. Savory tobacco notes. Moderately ripe and full bodied- plenty of tannins remain on the long finish. Terrific now with plenty of structure to age. A terrific bargain at $50 on release.

    August 14, 2019 - In a perfect spot right now. Absolutely fantastic claret!

    August 13, 2019 - Mmm, this is starting to hit those notes of cigar box and spices while still maintaining a dark color and medium plus body. Excellent, great concentration, worth spending some time on a wine like this. I tasted at a party so I spent less time with it than I would have liked.

    August 8, 2019 - Educating the Youngsters (67 Pall Mall, London): Consistently wonderful - the slight funk, the cedar and the grip, savouriness on the palate. Substantial and exciting.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) There is a toasted edge to the bramble fruit here, with a chalky, rather bright but reserved, restrained nose. Soft on the palate, as restrained as the nose suggested, elegant but of substance. A very old-school composition, a firm core of tannin surrounded by gently polished fruit, firm acidity, and plenty of stone, mineral and pepper in the mouth. It terminates in a ripe, gritty, meaty finish. Plenty of grip here, really very good indeed.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) A firm nose, with fine fruit, presented in a reserved style, already quite unmistakeable despite this wine's young age. Some good flesh on the palate, but here reserved and stylish also. Very appealing, fresh, lively, with some delicious dark fruit. Very good indeed. Another elevation in score here I see.

    (Chateau Léoville-Barton St Julien) A good colour, with moderate depth. Really rather classic claretty fruit on the nose, perhaps just a little note of cherry that is a little incongruous, with a little oak-derived nutty character too. Elegant style on entry, quite apparent and attractive balance, with a lovely weight set against fresh acidity and a ripe structure. It is a little reticent but gives some good flavours when worked hard. This has very good potential, and simply needs time, probably 8-12 years.
