Wow! An excellent value Medoc estate that shows its age in all the best ways. Mature nose of old leather, pipe tobacco, and cedar. Lush red cherry and richness on the palate.

Perfectly aged with some life left. Deep red in color, soily’ aromatics with dark black cherry plum and tobacco on the nose. Silky smooth on the palate. Subtle and elegant. Totally Bordeaux and a real beauty. Cork looked like it was 5 years old instead of 33

Drinking well but also craving more time in bottle. Didn’t stand up to its new world counterpart (‘14 Heitz Cabernet). Less aromatic but more tannic than the Heitz. Nearly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a splash of Petite Verdot. Has some thinking to do. Good but not great.

2016 vintage. Classic elegant Margaux-like. Should age well.

J’adore. At peak. Incredible nose of cherries, mocha, graphite, and earth. The same echoes on the palate. The freshness is truly remarkable, hardly any bricking with a deep core. No decanting needed but better after 20 minutes in the glass. Where’s the duck breast?

Classic old school Claret. Lovely smoke, leather, tobacco, graphite, cassis. Palate is fresh with great purity and velvety tannins. Killer with filet. No rush but in a great spot.
