Belle matière et concentration sans être trop. Assez Puissant et encore serré un peu. À attendre quelques années surement avant d’être à son peak. 90-91
Very nice now, powerful and tight still, needs a few years of cellar still,to be at it’s peak. — a month ago
Charleston. Always a treat. A bit smoky and black olive — 21 days ago
Nose has ripe black cherry, menthol, few day old chocolate cake, blueberry jam and old cigar box. Initially alcohol makes itself known, but diminishing with air.
Palate has dried blackberries, dehydrated sweet cherry, over-ripe black cherry, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, faint cedar with medium tannins, long finish. A great wine but more air desired as improvements are noted.
Decanted 2H, then double-decant for service; notes at 4H open.
Second bottle of almost a case of old BV GdL from a very trusted local source, no disappointing. Many more bottles to go on this stellar vintage. 😉
A great paring to Ribeye from Allen Bros. topped with truffle butter. — a month ago
Still holding together quite nicely after 15 years. But then again it should considering it’s pedigree. ￼ — 19 days ago
