Drunk from a magnum and therefore surprisingly approachable, nice nose full of black currents, earthiness,coffee, and oak, medium body, round tannins, good acidity, the mid body is missing a bit of depth and it is more on the medium side than the full body style. Yet pleasant and enjoyable. My score 88, drink to 2021

Here my findings: first 3 hours in the decanter parked, that he has to be necessary.
Still young for a St. Estephe Cru Bourgeois Exeptionel 2009 Royal nose with aromas of Red spicy berries, sweet dark berries, Plum, vanilla, coffee, flowers and a hint of oak.
Surprisingly accessible, yet still pretty in its tannins, but in a style I like.
Will continue to evolve over the next ten years.
Now 91 + DSP

Warming, tabac and dried fruit notes, lacking a little fruit for me. Label says keep for 12-18 years but wouldn't wait any longer, just on the edge in 2016

Cassis, dried herbs, spice, earth, black currants, med + tannin. A bit young, but really pretty.

Not my cup of tea for now, to much power, lack of elegance and of fine fruits - try carafe to open it - see you in a few years

Great QPR Bordeaux, packed with black fruit, smoke and tar from the oak showing, drinks well young.

Delicious and classic Bordeaux for current drinking. Was great choice with Lamb Neck at Boulevardier in Dallas.

Available by the glass at the Hotel Krone in Murten. A nice red to pair with a meal.
