A great Paullic from a great vintage. Very tasty and bold. Showing currants, licorice, oak, vanilla, cedar, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn and leather.

Shows great complexity with hugh tannins, after 2.5 hours of airtime, so be patient.

Still young and needs another 10 years in the bottle to mature properly, but already enjoyable.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$125.

Delicious right now. Very savory with herbs, leather and tobacco. Surprisingly mineral. Sustains well.

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.

Extremely young, balanced, a little simple at the moment.

2010 vintage. Nice but nothing distinctive - M O R Bordeaux.

Blackberries, currants, and musty truffles with spices made this a complex and fine wine. Definitely a winning year.
