  • V barnyardish with lots of poopiness and some might call it v bretty. Lots of old farmer digging his hands into manure and soil action here with cow hide and all. Thought this was v left bank and almost pauillac styled.

  • Dinner at New Ubin Seafood (New Ubin Seafood): This was stunningly young for a wine that has pushed past its first decade. It still needs a lot of time in the bottle, but I think it should make a very decent wine in say another 5-6 years. The nose was quite the typical Pomerol, with whiffs of sweet cherries, cassis and some deeper plum scents, and then lots of tobacco, some mossy undergrowth and a lilt of wilting flowers. I quite liked that, except for the fact that it was a little muddled here and there - like something you would get from a very young wine. The palate too, while displaying some nice qualities, was also so very primary. It had a core of sweet cherries and berries, maybe some cigary ash, but not much more showing on the attack and midpalate. What I did like though was the bright acidity, and the long, balanced finish with its hints of spice and flowers. A bit on the light-side for a Pomerol, but still with a nicely textured body with fine tannins lending some shape and relief to the wine. Very decent indeed.

  • Light brown rim betrayed its age but otherwise still very dark. Notes of earth, tobacco, mushrooms, ink and evident horse made it easy to spot a Bordeaux in the blind tasting. The tannins were polished and the horsey flavour quite pronounced in the mouth which still showed some acidity. Not complex but still alive and kicking and drinkable as long as you like a little bit of stinky character. Probably another couple of years left in it.

  • RJ nakedish offline (Rotisserie Jules, South Kensington, London): Some ageing in the colour. Classic claret nose of pencil and slightly pinched quality. Meaty, horsey nose. Similar on palate. Gets slightly better with time. A surprising success.

  • Très très agréable à boire. Saveur intense de beurre. Soyeux. Manque de complexité.
