This was absolutely singing. Smoky on the nose and a touch of earthiness on the palate but with wonderful fruit and a kiss of new oak. Excellent balance and finesse.

First of the reds for the Non-Napa Bordeaux tasting. Deep ruby red with garnet edges. Nose made it seem a lot older than an 09. Notes of forest floor, damp leaves, truffles, plums and dark cocoa on the nose. A little bit of heat that will hopefully blow over with time. Moderate tannins (6/10) with a bit of acidity. Full bodied with a bit of heat and dark cherries. Long finish. Drink from 2018 till 2028.

Accessible. Big and fruity. Nice easy drinking. Too young. Decent tannic structure under the ripe fruit.

2009 is reported to be a good year but they’re not doing it for me. Good, big cab flavors but no nuance here.

Very young and sweet , ripe cherry fruit, doesn't really seem to be a pauillac. Ok length and balance but seems quite light. Maybe vintage dominating .
