Sitting nicely in its drinking window. Touch of Brett, nicely resolved tannins just what you look for in a nice classy claret

Tasting of 1999 2nd growths. Brick red with brown edges. Initial faint musty aroma suggested TCA, but it eventually dissipated, so probably not. Unfortunately, once I smell cork taint, that's all I smell in the glass. Woody, with faint red fruit flavors and good acidity. Still firm tannic finish.

Red fruit leather, fresh sweet tarragon, smoked red currant, pressed dry cassis, a slight oyster shell to light purple olive. Baked brick and slight red pepper flake on the long finish.

Fruit is mature, with the terroir shining through; wet stones...finishes nicely

There was still a lot of flavor in this one; dried fruit and leather.

Classic nose with red fruit and a hint of toffee. Palate is well balanced with nice acidity, tobacco, leather, blueberry jam and lead pencil on the finish.

Cherry and tobacco leaf. Structure is fading, needs to be consumed now.
