    Sexy, midnight dark color, close to full body, slow yet beautiful tears in the rim. Attractive floral, berries, cream, spice, with a hint of mint and vanilla on the nose, beautiful. Taste of tobacco, crushed sugar, lead pencil, bacon, so rich! Finish last for over 30 sec, brilliant. Strong tannin, yet beautifully balanced, can age and be fantastic over the next 10-15 years! In love with it.

    Dark dark ruby color, almost full bodied with attractive tears on the rim. Brilliant nose of ripe fruits, black berries, floral, lavender, green pepper, a hint of mint and meaty. Sweet ripe berry taste exploded on the palate, lead pencil, wood, strong tannin, but good balance and structure. Beautiful, and it can cellar and get better and better. Beautiful 2003 from St Estephe =)

    Appear still to be a young wine, dark dark ruby color, almost opulent, medium to full bodied, with nice looking tears. On the nose, black currants, spice, bit of fresh oak, very interesting given a ten year old. Taste of blueberry, tobacco, cedar, tannin is still quite strong, though very tasting. This wine can still age and gets even better. Brilliant!

    Gentle smell of black berries, chili, lavender, fresh grass, a hint of fresh tomato, ham. Medium to full bodied with dark ruby/purple color. On the palate, okay, taste of strong tobacco, mint, forest floor, slightly strong tannin in the middle, not really silky. Decent finish, lasting 20 sec. Wonderful

    My first own bottle KF 2008. Splendid! On the nose, blackberries, mint, spice. Medium to full bodied. Smooth, velvety kn the palate, as how I remember from the first time I tasted it. What a treat! With the bottle aerated for over an hour, aroma changed a bit, with lavender, creamy butter, vanilla, crushed sugar, very gentle. On the palate, taste has opened up as well stronger flavor, masculine , with a hint of graphite, great finish with tobacco, cherry, finishing last for 20 sec. This wine is so easy on the palate, silky, even ladies would find it so easy to drink and keep asking for more. Brilliant!
  • Clos Du Marouis Saint Julien 2002 one year ago Clos Du Marouis Saint Julien 2002
    Nice bouquet, with smell of berry, grass and vanilla. On palate, tannin just a bit tight. In the glass for an hour, not a whole lot happening, and stayed at that afterward. Perhaps a second wine from 2002 is not that great afterall.

    Full bodied. Not a strong aroma out of the bottle. With swirling, smell of berry, lead, mushroom and tobacco on the nose. On palate, velvety, smooth, tannin seems to have soften well, with just a bit of hardness towards the end. Quite nice & easy to drink.

    Great taste of the first 2003. With one hour in the glass, bouquet and fruit taste comes out deliciously.
