A great 19 year old Left Bank red, from a great vintage. Shows a pretty ruby color with a wide brick rim.

Pronounced nose of blue and black fruits, earth, wet leaves, forest floor, smoke, tobacco, vinaigrette, cocoa and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry, spicy, earthy and gentle with still enough fruits.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (90 minutes).

Good by itself or with food. I would probably have preferred it 3 years ago.

Tasted it blind, and this time got it right 😊

12.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Had a good showing. Not as exuberant as we expected, showing more savory and pencil lead notes. Good dried black fruit and pepper on the palate as well. Holding together extremely well.

Dense-ish purple with multicolor rim tinged brown from age. Needed 45 minutes to open but didn’t disappoint and was easily the headline of the night. Deep dark black cherry was present but secondary to smokey earthy goodness. A flourish of tannins integrated beautifully and lingered. A rich, dense texture that will stay with me. But still soft and so so drinkable. Med plus body and med acidity. What a great treat for me and my wife (and in-laws). A solid “A” experience for my first (somewhat aged) Bordeaux.
