Dust and walnut husk with shaved chocolate and mint. Blueberry and chocolate with sweet black olive and dried flowers. Finish shows it’s youth and firm but accessible tannins.

Classic Pauillac. Drank this vintage in mid-2016 at the risk of infanticide but it revealed itself to be pretty, complex and already showing a great deal of finesse. Hints of purple flowers coming through, but still a very dense wine loaded with black currant, pencil lead, leather and gravel. I always admire the great tension of Pauillac when it is done right. Earth, gravel and funk wrapped in an almost creamy mouthfeel. Touch of brett that only serves to enhance my enjoyment. Hoping to procure another bottle of this vintage to enjoy well down the road.

Yum! 2005 vintage. Still got some time to grow. Tannins still a hint pushy, but everything else in place. Spice, currants, bit of pencil lead, hint of tobacco and nice acid.

Pleasing and everything you want from Pauillac. Red currant and subtle leather aromas with a touch of dusty rock notes.

Classic Clerc. Less intense than from a warmer, riper year, but has all the complexity and fine balance you'd expect.

Delicate florals and dried fruits, the acidity is diminishing but it is still a lovely wine. Drink sooner rather than later.
