Second wine in flight five for the Bordeaux Master's Class at Heart's Delight with wines from Saint Estephe.

Deep ruby red with garnet edges. A touch of forest floor on the nose with dark red fruits. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Quite rustic with earthy notes and a touch of mushrooms. Solid gravel too in the medium plus finish. Drink till 2028.

I miss the rusticity of the past, but there's no denying that this is cleverly made. Sweet, grainy and accessible tannins, pure cherry fruit, hints of blackberries and freshly cut oregano; this is nicely updated. I like it a lot, but there's just something missing...

Dry and short finish, powerful wines which is way to young, rich, roasted notes, a great character but needs time

There's a positive rusticity here, combined with elegant additions of red and black currants, dark chocolate and pure, fresh acidity, cleansing the back palate. Should be very pleasant from 2018.

Needs decanting for at least an hour. 2 hours if you have time 😉

Very open and beautiful nose followed by a much tighter mouth that is still in need of time. Its not the classiest juice but lots of potential here if you give it another 3 to 5 years.

tense, thick and chubby. But still nicely balanced.
