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

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.

Oh hell yes. Perfect balance, delciousness just gushes in the most restrained way.

Rich fruit. Briars and black earth. Plays on the tongue. Great projection 2".

Tried côte à côte with the Gruaud Larose 375ml, this was a little one dimensional, primary fruit, showing more oak, think it needs another 5 years.

Lots of mushroomy earth and wet leaves. Some barnyard and animal funk. Black and res fruit intermingled but this is an earth bomb. Just the way i like it.

After 95', what could rival this fabulous vintage? A monumental one! Ripe black cherries and black plums, a velvety structure lifted by a menthol nose.💥💥💥

Such a suave, powerful nose with a spicy soy & Chinese five spice that is perfectly married to the ripe blackcurrant fruit, cedar, graphite & gravel, still youthful, loads of time ahead of it. Uber balance on the palate, seamless but silky tannin will handle meat. Beautifully ripe and rounded with a rich chocolate and black fruit length, still has much to give
