Second wine in flight four for the Bordeaux Master's Class at Heart's Delight with wines from Saint Julien and Pauillac.

Deep ruby core with garnet edges. Quite tight and mute on the nose, with a touch of dark fruits and some burnt notes. More rounded than the 2014. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. A touch green on the palate with red berries. Medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2024.

Another tasting! 30-35 year old vines composed of 47% cab, 47% merlot, 5% cab franc, 2% petit verdot. Smells full of dark fruit, very plush.
Dark cherry notes predominate, with some black currant and blue berries. Appreciably greater complexity than Beychevelle’s second label. Very smooth. Hint of smokiness. Very well balanced. Nice mouthy feel. The tannins are strong and quite restricted at the back end. Slightly too acidic, it's a bit early for this one (but I’m nit picking) Overall Amazing. In 10 years or so this is going to be ridiculous. I’m finding it difficult to rate the wine I’m tasting in the current moment versus what it will become over the next 10 years. Either way, the experience was gold.

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат чёрной смородины, вяленой вишни, засахаренной малины, мускатного ореха и кожи. Высокая кислотность и вяжущие танины. Черника и шоколад во вкусе. Отличное, хоть и не очень сложное вино. (02.10.2017)

CS 47% M 47% CF 4% PV 2%

Deep almost inky with slight sign of development on the rim, some bricking but still youthful.

Classic Bordeaux bouquet of savory infused black fruit. Complex nose of enticing barnyard funk, seabreeze, new leather, cooking spice.

On the palate, still very structured. Mouth stainingly full tannin, med body, dry. Cassis, blackberry, dark cherry commingling with mature signs of development. Sage, thyme, cattle range, forest floor, mushroom, smoky, and nutty new oak.

Impressively classic. Will need at least 10 years more to not be accused of committing infanticide. 90++

A bit young. I felt the wine was a bit thin. Not a lot of punch in the wine even though it has only 4 years. I could sense black fruit but not a lot of wood and meats.
