Lovely and soft. Great red fruits still going. Lots of tertiary notes but still not over the hill. Acid is still bright.

2015 vintage. Kosher version. Decent, but not up to Cru Classé standards.

Dark Ruby with rich black fruit aromas and spicy notes. On the palate ripe flavors of blackberry and black plum with notes of cacao and licorice. Well structured, fine tannins on long finish. Good now!

One moment rich and dense and boisterous. One moment soft and elegant. Still trying to work through the story it’s trying to tell, but it’s an intricate one worth listening to.

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.

Nice, but a few steps behind the GPL.

Vintage 2000 / Italian tiles colour at the rim. Bouillon. Tobacco. Eucalyptus. Plums. Cedar. Rondeur and refinement. I swallowed t before thinking ‘spit it out’ when tasting it 🤭

Mid to light bodied, pretty but not overly exciting. Near term drinking.
