‘75 Vintage. Elegant, subtle tobacco and rose petal, fine grain tannins. Showing beautiful for its age.

This has held its age well. Subtle fruit, good tannin structure. It only needs about 20-30 mins in the decanter. A lot of tertiary flavors, mushroom, forest floor, earthy. Great experience!

Dusty and salty on the nose, savory and salty on the palate with muted spices. Long finish and quite refined.

Black currant, black pepper, blackberries, chocolate, coffee. Medium to full bodied, good tannins and acidity. I think it will hold well.

Slight BlackBerry, Chocolate, woodforest, woody,
Dry. Mid+acidity, dissolved and small rest of tannin

Best time to drink, chateau person said.

I felt that acidity relatively stands out, and lack of concentration even if dense oak aroma filled in the blank instead.

Great bottle, purchased at the chateau about 15 years ago. I only wish I could remember the exact price tag. I think it was under 25 Euros though.

Stunningly youthful and lovely. Almost no sediment or deposits for the age of the bottle. So surprisingly good

This has aged into quite a beauty. Floral, lots of potting soil, some cassis, fresh rain, meadow, a dark profile yet aged yet not. Terrific nose. Lots of tar and tobacco as well. Palate is compact and fresh with nice density and opulence and length. Persistent. Good ripe tannins and that trademark 2000 whiplash acidity. Love it.
