Bordeaux tasting at Classic Wines. Ruby red with slight brownish edges. Nose was interesting with a little red fruit, cheese and sweet bread. Moderate body with moderate tannins (6/10) a little furry. Finish matches the body and tannins.

Gets better with each bottle. Should try to keep some until 2020-2025. A very good substance but needs at the moment a lot of time in decanter to open up. Tannins are very tight. Can be excellent one day.
