Sour cherry, leather, earth, plums. Very pure, intense and long. Savory, lean. Good.

Tremendous integration, focused and complex, black currants, graphite, cigar box and classic cedar. The finish is mesmerizingly long and the texture is ultra silky and seductive.

Quite reserved in the nose. Leather and soft red sour fruit. Medium bodied, quite poised and lean. Good

Everything you want out of St Estephe (even though the chateau is famously close to Pauillac from a terroir perspective...) Black currant, plums, leather, green tobacco, iodine, olive tapenade, but velvety soft so the austerity doesn’t extend to the tannic structure.

Rich fruit. Briars and black earth. Plays on the tongue. Great projection 2".

Tried côte à côte with the Gruaud Larose 375ml, this was a little one dimensional, primary fruit, showing more oak, think it needs another 5 years.

Lots of mushroomy earth and wet leaves. Some barnyard and animal funk. Black and res fruit intermingled but this is an earth bomb. Just the way i like it.
