Great! 1hr decant but probably should have PnP’d as this tired quickly and is a little past prime drinking window. Started out at 97 and ended at 94. Dark red, maroon color with ample bricking. Nose has bramble, cedar, and licorice. Massive depth which separates the $50+ Bordeaux’s from the same priced Napa wines. Lots of cherries and some Amarone and Port elements near the end. Medium finish. A fav of mine! Very consistent across vintages.

Awesome!! Classic Bordeaux. Dark red color. Graphite, cedar, dark cherries, and earth on the noise. Chewy and deep. Paired great with lamb chops. Awesome QPR!

Wow! Loved it! 1hr+ decant. Dark red color. Floral nose which is insane. Medium plus depth with cherries, violets, and decent tannins. Medium plus finish with an entire bouquet of flowers. No wonder it’s one of my favorites. Totally undervalued and let’s keep it that way!!

378hkd city super 2017/10. Bright red fruit. No complexity. Slightly corked. 8.4
Re-tasted another bottle 2017/11. Better, still minimal development.

Clearly a good maker, maybe not the best year

In its drinking wine. From Mag. Surprisingly well balanced for an 03. Pleasant is not extraordinary drink. Classic Bordeaux.
