Vintage 2000 / very intens cherry smell, very good concentration, great balance, wine with still clear potential, surprising. A Grand Seigneur.

Pronounced juicy fruits on the nose, tastes like diluted fruit juice but with tannins and alcohol.

Seamless and generous without being too plump or bloated. In a great moment. From magnum.

Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

Classic elegance
Outside lunch so bit difficult to carefully detect, but
Aged aroma, blueberry and blackberry,
Cedar, oak, touch of coffee.

Wow! Stunning wine. Never guessed it is already 19 years old/ young. Not showing age in color as still very dark red. Stable nose and blackberries. Drinking so easy. Still tanins present!
