Really on point. Brett and vegetal quality actually find great balance in this challenging vintage. Perhaps a function of better fruit making it to the pavilion. Either way I imagine this is what most young Bordeaux tasted like pre-1980s.

One of the very finest wines of the vintage. Beautiful, rich, lush body and mouthfeel. Lots of dark berry fruit nicely integrated with toasty oak and a hint of creosote. Delicious now and should remain delightful over the next 10+ years.

Lovely floral aromatics. Unlikely color. Broad and flat in the mouth.

Same as the 2009, a consistent super second wine that’s value for money. Valety smooth

Survived my first full week of WFH. My two “office assistants” helping show this bottle. Really enjoying this beautiful full bodied Bordeaux. Blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Dark inky color. Amazing nose. This is a gorgeous rich wine. It presents with a fresh silky mouthfeel. Black berries, licorice and black currant. One word - elegant! Perfect for a social distancing night.

A very complex wine with big muscular structure. Earthy smell at the beginning, Graphite, pencil shaving, tobacco leaves, coffee beans, very strong tannic but change to silky after hours. Decanted it for more than 5 hours it showed a different way. Really impressive for this Sunday night.
