    Quite young, crimson color. Blue fruit, stone, white flowers, wet earth, ripe plum, soy, iron mineral, green note. Lacking balance, quite acidic than expected, not much fruit, and seems tannins are quite resolved, soy, red cherry, bell chili. Medium bodied. Short finish with plum juice, tiny bit of smoke, with heat. Day 3, graphite, truffle on palate. Smell of rustic. Better, with firm tannins, better structure. Masculine Margaux

    Ruby red with Browning on the rim. Medium to full body. Soft red fruit, forest floor, glycerin, tobacco leaf, violet. Can still taste the tannins, but well integrated and soft, bring a layer of chewiness. Dried leather, wet wood, cocoa powder, pencil.shaving, bit of mushroom. Soothing on the nose, gentle on the palate. Wonderful treat. Tasty tannins making it felt, with just enough acidity to keep it balanced, nice. Added some nice weight.with air time.

  • Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe 2003 one year ago Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe 2003
    Ruby red and medium bodied. Nose of red fruits, graphite, crushed stone. Taste kinda light, with soft tannins, dry. Similar note on palate, cassis liqueur, graphite and smoke, short on structure and blurry taste. Short finish. Seems lacking a clear identity. Finally opened after 1.5 hour in the decanter, mineral nose with spice, currants. Softer tannin, still dry though.
  • Chateau Leglise Clinet Pomerol 1997 one year ago Chateau Leglise Clinet Pomerol 1997
    Dark red, with slight Browning at the rim. Full bodied. Currants, dark fruits, licorice, cocoa, minerals, touch of herbs quite nice, though not crisp. Taste of cigar wrapper, smoke, coffee bean, with a drop of oak. Nice nose, though short. Tannins still apparent and dry. Acidity is low, couldn't mask the alcohol that well, even low level 12.5%. Structure is solid, lacking a good balance. Finish of smoke, bitter dark cocoa. Short unfortunately

    Nose is actually kinda low key, with only cream and sweetness, star fruit?? Close to full bodied. Extremely smooth, very ripe, but not over the top. Sugar coated cherry, orange zest, anise. Super smooth, great structure as always. Syrupy With time and air, nose of black currant, licorice coming out. Super tasty, chewy tannins, no hard edges at all for a young wine. Medium to full bodied Finish is decent, with vanilla note and light tea leaf The high alcohol level is masterfully hidden, brilliant. Slowly, developed iron, mineral nose
