Beautiful Minty, meaty nose with beautiful balance and some delicacy from age but sustains a great finish. Pure joy!

Very impressive showing.
Lots of rich dark fruit on the nose. On the palette, the wine displays a wonderful structure. Tannins are immature, but well poised. Mid palette has notes of sandalwood and asian spice, with a plush texture. Finishes moderately sweet. This need another 3-5 yrs in bottle, but it should evolve to be something special.

A ferrous nearly sanguine Bordeaux that is rather more handsome than beautiful in that this Pauillac is masculine in its sandalwood, cedar plank, a cassis black currant and red plum, a wood smoke and a leathern and aromatic hardwoods with a breath of air only improving this all the more -remarkable! Thank you John and Peter Wackel!

Feels quite unbalanced - let's see how it will age further

Quite harmonious with soft and gentle character, dense wine - tannins still young, needs time in cellar
