Drank 1/18/19 at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux event in Miami.  All wines from the 2016 Vintage.

Tasting pour, no formal notes taken.  Most of these wines are very tight, and will require 5-15 years to really come together.  Many will likely improve a few points with time.

Loads of black fruit, with impeccable balance. A bit more open than many of the wines tasted. My choice for right bank wine of the night.

Stephen, I was between this and the Pichon Lalande for WOTN, but I would give the slight edge to the Pichon Lalande. Also very impressive were the Lynch Bages, Rauzan Segla, and the Canon La Gaffeliere.

I will post the rest of my comments in the next few days, but for some reason the wines do not seem to be coming up on my feed.

@Ken Z 100% agree ... the Pichon Lalande was super impressive.

More red fruit on this one, very elegant, but I dont necessarily understand the huge critical acclaim. A fantastic wine nonetheless.

Loads of red and black fruit with all the complexity you would expect. A close runner up for Right Bank WOTN for me. Always a favorite.

Count Stephan von Neipperg was pouring wine from his estate, and was happy to chat about the current vintage and other wines in his portfolio. A true gentleman.
