1999 vintage. Fully resolved, very smooth and pleasant black fruit. Not very complex. Would drink soon if you have this vintage.

Pencil lead and cassis, still opening. For certain, Saint Julien style. Medium length finish.
Ullage was mid shoulder.

Had the 2008 last night. Not much on the nose - rose petals, perhaps? A bit faded on the palate as well. Perhaps my fault for not having opened it a couple of years ago.

Tannic, cedar box black currants very classic a nice wine predictable like a Lexus but not for the adventurous good stuff but not more.
