Drinking at, basically, peak right now / earthy, with serious tobacco and cigar box; desiccated red fruit / smooth & elegant

As good an example as is possible to imagine of this wine. Very cloudy, ruby colored in the light. Much more purity on the nose with leather, dried leaves, closet. On the palate the wine still has a red fruit quality alongside gorgeous tar, leather and cloves. Long finish. Drinking this was a lovely way to ring in my birthday.

Lacking a bit. Nice secondary character but not the best

M/M Paul Chaperon owned this estate in the mid-19th Century and their descendants, the Ducasse Family, have since kept the property in their able hands until 1990, Mrs. Luis Ducasse, brought in a partner, Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), insuring L-T stability. Big fruit aromas with mineral & spice notes. Blackberry flavors, almost jammy, cacao & spice, rich and full. Smooth sweet tannins, great balance, lingering ending with soft earthy character. Pricey but great. Tasting Sample.

Tasted blind. Dark tawny with bricking rims. Animalistic nose with notes of ripe black fruit, cooked meat, plums, earth and a little anise. Very rich in the mouth. Powerful and complex. I guessed Cote Rotie. Nobody guessed Bordeaux. Still young but oh so silky right now.
