Gamey, smokey nose with a pinch of pepper and black currant. There are more secondary flavours than primary for now on the nose. Fruits make a comeback after a while and while agitating the glass. The palate is quite concentrated with blackberry and black currant for the fruit part, lively tannins and a bitter ending with a trace of chocolate that is very pretty. Nicely done. The acid backbone is there to support the palate and create balance. Not as good as the 2005 and 2010 I had the opportunity to taste but not far from them. Good wine. — 11 days ago
Big bold black fruit. Tannins have finally softened and nice touch of leather and tar notes. Drinking nice right now. — 2 days ago
Pretty pleased that I pinned this as a merlot dominant 2010 Left Bank Cru Bourgeois, though I guessed La Tour Carnet. A very competently made wine. Lovely, if slightly straight-forward nose of blackcurrent with a touch of soft oak and blackcurrent leaves. Drinking very well right now. — 16 days ago
Robe d’un bourgogne foncé... l’herbe fraîchement coupée et le cuir au nez avec une touche d’ancre. Belle rondeur!

Drinking nicely. Gunpowder flintiness. A little black olive on the mid palate, but nice acidity. A bit austere but nice for the value — 4 days ago
Slightly effervescent, really delicious. About $20 from stanleys — a day ago
