Lovely bottle bouquet. Resolved. Not a lot of fruit. V. astringent. Subtle angular red fruit.

Very good but the tannins came thru after a while . Probably won’t get any better since the fruit will start to die as it gets older .

Lovely but still a tiny baby. 👶 👶 👶 strong minerality at its core. So much underlying character but St Estephe wines need time. Preferred this to its neighbor Lafite.

Élégant and ethereal. Great depth, concentration and balance. A Rolls Royce of a wine #saintestèphe

Brett and new oak do more disservice to the wine than the 2002 vintage.
