Blind tasting night - Considered Bordeaux Varietals due to the Pyrazines, and I should have gone old world due to the tart fruit on the pallet.. however it was ripe, and I went Margaret River, Australia.. should have went with my gut. But, it was midnight so I'll blame it on fatigue, ha. 🙃

Great wine from a great vintage - fun fact: this estate is the only other estate to be edited into the 1855 Classification a year later, as a 5th growth, literally hand written into the list.

Ready to drink just after opening but improves immensely after a few hours of decant.
Fresh black currants & pencil shavings with a savoury green pepper note. So fresh on the palate, with a wonderful presence on the mid palate and very fine, dusty & juicy tannins. Fantastic drinkability. This is in a very fine moment right now - so delicious!

Great vintage great value. Juicy mid pallet gives way to a very nice long finish. Mostly Merlot so you don’t get much oak or spice. You taste the true dark fruit that comes from ancient old world vines. This wine is a dArk, rich purple color to the rim. No staining on the tears. Notes of soft baking spice, clove on the nose. All around beautiful Bordeaux bottle.

One of the great values in the left bank. Tobacco, cedar, pencil shavings, cassis, and blackberries. Very much classic old world Bordeaux, but with some more expressive fruit. Good concentration and length, per usual.

Dark ruby with dark fruit, pencil, oak, wet soil. Great vintage. Opened up relatively quickly. This is very solid.

Bigger, bit less lean than 09. Even riper fruit.
