Love it and all smiles - a cross of what Mayacamas wine would be when made in the Bordeaux style from st Julien specifically leoville style - please decant three hours or rest a little more in the bottle - promise it will last 30 years - deep purple in color actually a beautiful rich purple - dark fruits galore - Christian Moeiux is a genius - sweet cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crème de cassis, and black raspberries - full-bodied powerful complex mouthfeel is incredible - maybe this could become a new Dominus

900 cases produced - I think suckling is a little high with his score of 98 but hits many of the marks - I would try this wine compared to a dominus and I bet you will see what I am talking about - Bevan’s napa Bordeaux’s are more approachable upfront and the consistent scores he gets reflects this but given time this should be a wine that will compete and a wine to try - bravo CM - thank you for challenging yourself

Showing much better than the 2013, this was inviting and perfumed. Still needs time in the cellar, but refined and class all the way.
