Vintage 2006 - combines power with elegance. Velvety taste. Evolution in colour, very rich nose with chocolate, cedar, red fruit. #pauillac

Youthful acid overtaken by stark tannins and underdeveloped progression.

Another Weekly Wine Committee, this time hosted by @Weston Eidson and @Benjamin Keator ! They knocked it out of the park with French wines! As always, all wines are tasted blind.

Another Bordeaux wine that exhibited classic notes, but this one was juicer than the first. Cranberries, plums and herbs.

Too young. No surprise there. Tannins are firm and tertiary notes starting to come around. Dark and earthy.

Dense, dark, brooding. Still very young; needed some time to breathe but opened beautifully. Despite its high cost, you can taste the breeding.

Good wine. Typical smokiness. Some sweet red fruit present. Drinking smoothly. I do not see this getting better although everything is there for quite some years (fruit, tanins).

Light, fruity but not tart, minerals, very French! Earthy undertones but wanting it to open up more.
