    January 31, 2019 - Very fragrant upon opening, this fades rather quickly. This is a very nice bottle, somewhat past its prime but still really nice, especially since I owned the case since release.

    January 26, 2019 - Fully mature Bordeaux. Past its prime to be sure, but still elegant. Drink up!

    January 3, 2019 - Drank over 2 nights. Pretty underwhelmed. Funk. Decent color. Thin to medium bodied. Have some younger versions so will be interesting to try it. But, at these prices, I will go elsewhere.

    September 20, 2017 - In OCNJ w Frank, slow oxed for about 45 minutes, drank over 90 minutes.

    Medium ruby, separating at the edges. Nose was open and evolved over the time drank. Classic Paulliac nose: berries, cedar, graphite, lavender. Palate showing dusted blackberry, currant, spice....caramel on the mid palate. Medium body and finish. Fruit has faded a bit (from memory) from last bottle. Elegant but lacking depth.

    This is fully mature, a shade past its prime. Evolved nicely over the time we drank it. I don;t think is improves from here, would drink in next few years

    August 16, 2017 - Wonderful wine that was intense 4 days after opening. Full body and concentrated fruit. No bricking found and I would drink over the next 5 years. It is in the sweet spot now. I suggest a four hour decant and the wine will just be better the more air you give it. Save some for the next day.

    (Chateau Pichon-Baron Pauillac) Obviously mature from inspecting the colour. Pleasant, mature fruit on the nose. Clean. A fat texture, with still a little unresolved tannin. Firm acidity. There is some sweet, pastille like fruit. For drinking over the next couple of years. A rare performance for this vintage.
