Wine that keeps getting better every vintage. Lovely classic old school nose that has such precision. What a leap over the the 09 and 10. Bittersweet cocoa, kirsch, cassis, leather, mineral, touch of smoke but also intensely mineral. So mineral. Palate is profoundly juicy and complex with terrific structure and freshness. Rich cassis and black cherry fruit and hints of bitter chocolate. Ripe and juicy tannins and crazy concentration and power. Too young obviously but the best young Samion I've ever had. What a great wine.

Fall vibes here. In a great place. Bittersweet cocoa, cassis, red plum, stones, flowers. Great. Fresh and vibrant, with lovely deep fruit, but really impressive freshness. Shed some of its monolithic vibe since I've had it last. Balanced, super juicy and very pure. Age has done this well.

Project of Jean Claude Berrouet who made 40+ vintages of Petrus. Really lovely nose. Classic right bank. Plummy. Cocoa. Focused. Palate is ripe with terrific acidity out of the gates and lovely balance. Intense structure. A bit out of sorts out of the bottle but it is all there. Will be fun to track.

Wonderful. Went with our duck breast and steaks, full body with tannins and structure but not jammy.
