  • Timuquana BYO (TCC): Very nice. Black cherry. Dark baking spices. Almost a hint of the sea air. It’s a lovely wine. Very structured and elegant. Not going anywhere anytime soon but it’s in a nice drinking spot at the moment.

  • Truffle Night at The Papies (The Papies, Elizabeth St, London): From a beautiful magnum , decanted for a good two hours as it felt it needed it.
    And post that it was on point and at full stride, delivered to a set of tough palates and with impressive youthfulness still albeit with good evolution. Round, soft rich , juicy dark fruit. The nose is of a much younger wine especially comparing it to the 1996 Pichon Lalande we had just before ( Papies 95-96) and with a darker feel. Generally an impressive performance and with zero signs that this is on the way down. An impressive and elegant 95-96

  • opened a couple of hours prior to tasting

    deepish red-purple color just starting to show maturity at the rim, black plums, a bit of cassis, pepper and dried herbs on the developing nose, on the palate also still a work in progress with cherries and cassis surrounded by textured herbal edges, good finish, with time a genteel note of saddle leather and some savory elements starting to emerge, in a good place but still with some evolution ahead I think.

    ***+, now to 2031+

  • very sadly the last of my bottles and undoubtedly the best - beautiful bouquet, still a rich colour and at its peak - complex & long - sensational

  • 醒酒两个半小时,深石榴红色,闻香有陈年后的梅果一类的香气,可可混合着檀香,橡木桶充分融合后的香料感和木质香气,些许的石墨和雪松气息,香气开放,闻起来复杂而又高级,充满了“钱”的味道,是1996-2001六个年份里闻起来香味最诱人的。入口酸度高,单宁细腻得几乎感觉不到,酒液咸,酒体不大,结构精巧,雪松石墨,成熟的话梅和梅果香气,口感轻盈飘逸,非常优雅,在檀香和胭脂的悠长余味中收尾。1996应该不是一个非常强的年份,这是一款充分陈年,处在适饮巅峰末期的酒,完美的保存状态没有丝毫的老态,展现出老年份西施佳雅柔和细腻的一面,现在就是它的高光时刻,继续陈年下去也不会有更多发展了。
