Nose has neverending crushing of flint/granite, warm lemon curd, salted yellow apple slice, cool Asian pear and old, crystalline cheddar.
Palate has ripe pineapple, over-ripe yellow apple, moist chalk/limestone, dried coconut shreds, faint butter notes, table salt with medium acidity. A great wine, slow oxidation for 2H then decanted 3H, so many years in front of this amazing bottle. Drink this 2026-2030 from proper storage.
Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉 — 19 days ago
Not bad. A little too reductive for me and is missing some acidity and brighter notes. Quality effort nonetheless. — 4 days ago
May 30, 2021. Purchased in Bordeaux May 2016 at the wine store across from the Madison du Vin. Appropriate to have w/ C. Although I love left bank Bordeaux, this was quite good. Medium to Full bodied. Dark red fruit and truffle on the nose, cherry, smoke, earth and black pepper. Not disappointed. — 13 days ago
