  • I always thought that this (and most other 2006s) were angular and not at all charming. Having not tried this since 2018 I decided to serve it with burgers when having a few friends over (who was going to complain in that setting?). But it was terrific now, smooth without being too sweet, almost a classic Bordeaux. Now I wish I still had the rest of my bottles left.

  • 2 hour decant, nice rich and broad fruited Pauillac. More generous than the 06 Lynch tasted alongside.

  • Good cork. Garnet colour with quite a distinct clear rim. Nose has a definite graphite/pencil. Very much blackcurrant lead on the palate - quite thin with a heavy tannin on the finish. Not unpleasant but no classic in the making - drink up I would say,

  • A very nice Pauillac from an average Vintage,aired-out for 6 hours, lots of creamy dark fruit on the nose, lead pencil, was a bit shut at first.
    Went very well with braised lamb Leg, still feel like this did not open up to it's full potential, the mouth is lovely with Cassis, leather and hints of tobacco, tannins are super well integrated , lacking a little wow factor and complexity ,the vintage could be reason here, nevertheless a fine wine with our meal and sure it still has another 5/10 years left in the tank.

  • Butch1970 summed this up very well. Lovely wine that just lacks the depth/power of better vintages. I'd drink it on its own rather than with food.
