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.

This was excellent. We love the fruit, but it was very obviously young. The tannins definitely need several years to relax - really tight and chalky. I’m really excited about these with more age, hopefully I can wait that long....

Third wine of the week. Fabulous potential here. Even at this young age, the wine is fresh, lively, and smooth. The nose bursts from the glass with black currants, tobacco, and plum. The palate is already smooth with notes of graphite, soil, plum, and blackberry. Lively and fresh. Give this 10 years - it will be quite good. 2016 vintage on April 19, 2020

Beautiful opaque ruby color. Rich woody tobacco on the nose. Initially acidic but once it opened up it expressed better with lovely complexity. Hints of cherry and anise as it dries to subtle bitterness.
