Developing nicely; I have a few bottles stashed away and had not opened one in a while nice to see where it’s going. Earth, leather, soy, umami!

Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

Finally a 2000 Bordeaux that doesn't need another decade to develop. Totally st Julien in every way. Not a blockbuster but a beautiful wine that is great now but can age for many more years to come

One of the better-known Crus Bourgeois of the Medoc.
Had another ‘11 in cellar. Dark Ruby with aromas of black and blue fruits with tobacco spice. Palate displays blueberry and blackberry with cacao and earthy herbs. Smooth characteristics, well balance full body wine with velvet tannins. Not a satisfying wine. Prrfect now. Consistent wine!

Chose this bottle on a whim. Was told this won’t compete with the big boys, but I grabbed it anyway and was rewarded!! Lovely acid framing some fruit and herbs. Super pretty.

Love half off bottle night!
Fruit is fading, graphite and metallic notes are front of palate, 30 min in decanter so far.

Strawberries and raspberries and a dash of Christmas spice. A light cake? Not exactly. This Gloria might continue adding complexity in bottle. Not quite trumpeting-angels good, but very pleasant for sure.
