Coiled as hell but a long decant gave way to an awesome and a more classic (to me) Bordeaux. Its structured and tannic with a great spine of acid to it, however the dense brambly fruit holds up. Beautiful. Layers of gravel, turned earth, cedar and tobacco below it all. 20+? Should be stellar.

Just tasting this after being opened on June 21st, 2019. Supposedly the cellars will eventually be renovated. South facing vineyards. Less fresh and less precise than Clerc Milon 2016.

Beautiful bright red florals nose. Bright light & dark ripe, red fruits. Stones, rich earth, showing lots of wood early, great acidity and nicely polished finish.

Part of Costco package. These are pretty good wines but I think they should age a bit.

Excellent—just a baby. Would love to see where this heads in 10-20 years.

横浜そごうのエノテカで購入。8500円。メドック格付け5級。シャトームートンロートシルトの横の畑で所有者も同じロートシルト。

Excellent young Bordeaux, nice rich fruit with cedar wood, cigar smoke and floral notes. Amazing how well this drinks being so young, the 16’s from this region seem to be a lot more open already than the 15’s. Recommended.
