Plums & dark chocolate coat the palate. Beautifully textured and powerful without ever seeming weighty. Tannins soften with air while some red currant notes emerge on the back end. Beautiful wine.

Surprise of the night--showing beautifully for a young Bordeaux. Ripe mineral laced black fruit, wet mulchy earth, leafy tobacco, subtly perfumed. Palate shows more youth but absolutely approachable tannins

After a solid hour of air a majestic and sophisticated wine began to bloom. It's absolutely lovely, rich berries, glycerin, minerals and dark chocolate. Merci!

Honestly a little disappointing. Very fragrant nose and rich and dark in the glass but palate is disjointed with tart fruit, some oak and earth but they don’t really combine. May all come together over time so I guess this should not have been disturbed for a few more years.

Obviously too young but relatively open knit and in a pretty decent place now with a little air (1 hr slow ox). Rich without being over the top.

一開始嚴肅古典,青椒、石墨、青草氣息,隨時間流逝漸漸柔和,帶出甜美可人的果香,以黑色系莓果為主,夾帶些許菸草與薄荷氣息,單寧柔順,甜美,尾韻綿長,有著些許礦物特質!不過左岸除了Margaux, Pessac-Leognan、其他我無法了!以後只專攻我最愛的右岸!

Outstanding. Pure expression of dark fruits, leather, chocolate, espresso, sweet tobacco. Very balanced tannins and a medium acidity.
