Earthy and characterful with crushed woodland berries, plum, mint, cedar and hints of sweet undergrowth. It was soft on the palate, with brisk acidity, savory minerals and tart red berry fruits. The finish was long, and slightly tart, yet also savory and stimulating--a great food wine and in a very nice place.

Black currant with some Mint and Leafy notes. Chest of cedar drawers. Dusty medium bodied palate with medium intensity and length. A nice silkiness to the fine grained tannins with a hint of bitterness. In its development very much on the plateau and could stay there for a while yet before tapering off. Summation: A good 3rd Growth in an excellent vintage.

Lighter than Pinot, but not dead.

One of the better wines I’ve had recently. In a really good spot, aging gracefully, these are probably not getting any better.

So good. Tastes very Merlot; polished, probably still has 10 years to go

Inky, dark, red cherry color. Sweet tobacco, gentlemen's musk, white, creamy floral on the nose. The palette is smooth, velvet, with very subtle layers. I can see why some reviews have mentioned that it seems flat. It doesn't have tannic layers. This wine is super elegant, non-pretentious and easy to drink alone or with non-complex dishes. Could easily age another 10+ years but what's the fun in that!! Drink now!

Subtle, attractive with layered red berry fruit, touch of five spice and rose petal, sweet tobacco, touch of graphite, feminine, attractive. Lacks on the palate though, drinkable but lacking the definition that you get on the nose, finish does have some elegant red fruit but still too drying to make this really shine.
