A very dense Ruby in colour. Rich red and black fruited perfume with nuances of earth and dried fig - a lovely Margaux perfume. A beautiful mature medium bodied claret from an excellent vintage. Great length and perfect balance with sandy dry tannins. Would go on into the latter part of this decade but very irresistible now. One of the better 3rd growths which reminds us why we like mature Bordeaux. One of the “1001 Wines to drink before you die.” An excellent accompaniment to Rump Cap.

Kind of beefy and alcoholic but still a good pairing with red meat.

Soy, purple, muddy, brick tinge. Mushroom, soy, moss, capsicum , savoury, meaty in the scent. Moss, soy, mushroom savour flavour, medium to heavy body. Very smooth tannins, feel it on the side of your mouth drying out with long long long length lingering like smoke. Velvety

This has a nice nose of rich black fruits, graphite and cedar. Was opened and left uncorked or over two hours. Sadly no decanter so did not get full effect of the air. This drinks lovely. Dark cherry, currant, tobacco, cocoa notes and more graphite. The finish is delicious and lingering. While not young it still has time to develop some more. Still this is a pretty balanced wine. We are lucky to have another bottle to revisit in a couple of years. Stay tuned.
