There is nothing like a fine, mature Bordeaux. Floral notes with fine balance between fruit and earthy tones with superb structure. Excellent color. — a day ago
Might have been a bit beyond optimal drinking age but still lovely floral bouquet and dried fruits and leather notes. Lingering smooth finish. Father-in-law shared it after aging for 15 years. — 13 days ago

Great nose. With a taste to match after breathing for an hour. — 18 days ago
At 5 years old this is gorgeous. Really gorgeous. White peaches, wet earth, lanolin, iodine, such purity and vivid details. Palate is juicy and explosive with tremendous freshness and energy. So so pure and delicate with top top finesse. I love white rhone. Long, delineated finish. So so long. Wow. Amazing texture. This is brilliant! — 19 days ago
Nose starts out tight. Then blossoms into deep berry fruit, game, smoked meats, florals, smoke, leather, so complex. So classic. Palate is super serious and super young but has wonderful balance, freshness and depth. I just popped this and it is perfect to follow along for the rest of the day. Really great energy and freshness and expanding mid palate of berry fruit is developing. Awesome texture and concentration while having a substantial refined yet there tannic backbone. Why Burgaud ages so well. Long finish. I’ll update as it airs.
Now after 5-6 hours of air this is really coming into its own. So olivey and floral. Stunning blueberry. Game. Meat. Just gorgeous. Palate is full of fruit, freshness and finesse. Gorgeous sappiness and terrific acidity. A baby but what a wine. — a month ago
