Still a baby. Tasted alongside the 2009 Rafanelli Cab and while both were killer, the Rafanelli seems to have the edge right now. This was still pretty wound up and seemed to have more to show down the road. Cassis, pencil shavings, earth. Tannic. Drink now with some patience or a decant. Will be best after 2025.

This will benefit from a few more years in the cellar, opens up beautifully in the glass!!

May 16, 2018. Bordeaux. At the Chateau. Most awesome. 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. Black fruit, smooth tannins. Ohlala. Best wine of the day, and what a fabulous day it was in the Medoc.

Savoureux des l attaque
En bouche du fruit rouge mur de la griotte ...
Un final persistant très parfumé
Mériterait à mon avis 1 ou 2 ans de garde supplémentaire
