Perfect. Complex nose. Nice mouth feel. Not many years left.

Still incredibly primary, as if just bottled, powerful nose dominated by classic cigar and cedar notes. Prominent, velvety oak led a rich, round palate of fine tannins and dark red cherry, baking chocolate. Tail went on forever. Give this 10 more years will be even better.

Wafts out of the class. Medium weight, lead pencil, cassis, dark fruit. Incredible length. Could benefit from 5 more years in bottle. Keeps intensifying.

One of the most disappointing first growths I’ve had. Not sure if the 11s need more time, or if they’ll just never come around. Atypically lean vintage of this with a fairly predictable and uninspired aromatic profile.

Dark scarlet color with translucent light reddish rims. Old wine nose. Notes of black and red fruit, gravel, barnyard floor, old leather and some old desk wood. Fruit is a bit faded but this has plenty of life with decent acidity and a nice structure. Got better with air and opened up nicely. Better than the last bottle of this lot, despite being a more ragged looking bottle.

This wine has a beguiling Ruby color that gives away nothing about its age. On the nose, black cherry, cassis, violet, cigar box and a wealth of tertiary aroma including mocha, leather, mushroom and forest floor hint at its 17 year age but the wine is vibrantly youthful. It is surprisingly medium bodied and relatively restrained - not as much power as I expected but it has a finish that seems nearly endless to confirm its pedigree
