Insane nose. So lush. Great. Spectacular actually.

This is lush and exotic. An expansive nose with black cherry, mocha, dark currant. Dense on the palate with lovely fruit but tightly coiled. Quite thick at the end. With time this should be spectacular.

Quite reserved in the nose. Leather and soft red sour fruit. Medium bodied, quite poised and lean. Good

An ex chateau bottle and it’s superb. Dark red fruit, meaty with tobacco. On the palate, sour cherry, deep brooding gnarly fruit. Very developed- still dense and pure.

Opulent nose of well done toast and cedar, dark fruit. Rich and sexy, so fresh and young, cassis dominant with a light vanilla. Full bodied, perfectly balanced. Years to peak.

I feel closer to my dad when drinking this wine. I don’t know why? Big day at Jonata

Brownish tawny. Regal, clear and almost opaque. Sweet old Bordeaux nose. Notes of cola, cranberry, plums, dried fig, earth, spice and some wood. A bit thin in the mouth at the start but with air it firms up. Decent finish. Grows nicely in volume and impact. The fragrant nose is what you remember.

First bottle from 2000 collection. Smooth black cherry. Mellow tannins. Wonderful finish that left you wanting more.

Everything you want out of St Estephe (even though the chateau is famously close to Pauillac from a terroir perspective...) Black currant, plums, leather, green tobacco, iodine, olive tapenade, but velvety soft so the austerity doesn’t extend to the tannic structure.
