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

Fifth wine in flight four for the Bordeaux Master's Class at Heart's Delight with wines from Saint Julien and Pauillac.

Deep to medium ruby red. Notes of cassis, tobacco and red currants on the nose. Solid acidity and heavy tannins (7/10). Medium bodied with a touch of greenery, red cherries and dustiness. Long finish. Drink from 2018 till 2040.

The season for cocottes (in the northern hemisphere at least) is upon us. Starting the season off with a spinach soufflé, roasted zucchini, and a grilled burger, with sharp cheddar and mixed greens, on a brioche bun.

👁 As for the wine...This is a red wine with a deep ruby hue.
.
.
👃 This wine has a medium (+) intensity of developing aromas, including, primary notes of black cherry, blackberry, black cassis, plum, fig, licorice, and violets, secondary notes of cedar, nutmeg, vanilla, and tertiary notes of leather, earth, espresso, sweet tobacco.
.
.
👄 Palate is dry. It has medium (+) acidity, medium (+) body, medium alcohol, high tannins, and medium (+) intensity of flavors consistent with the aromas on the nose. The finish is medium (+).
.
.
This is a very good wine and may be consumed now but has potential for (and will improve with) further aging. It still has so much life in it and is not as expressive and integrated as I suspect it could be with more time.

17/20 (92/100) Насыщенный аромат, в котором доминируют ноты спелых чёрных ягод, дополненные нотами шоколада, лакрицы и бальзамика. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, мягкими танинами. Молодое, но вполне доступное вино, которым можно наслаждаться уже сейчас. Есть потенциал к развитию. #dfwe2018
