(2002) A long haul wine.

(2006) Intense aromas of kirsch, currant and spice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is complex, changing on the nose and palate. Layered and structured. Will improve for many years to come.

(11-2016) Served blind initially. Subtle, dry but gorgeously smooth-textured with fully evolved tannins. Really fresh with great drive and energy - almost like a fully ripe Cabernet Franc. Savoury, leathery, firm yet round. Admirably long. No hurry to drink this.

(12-2000) Dark red. Average intensity. Evolved. Net. Average intensity. Discreet. Animal touch. Powerful. Warm. Cooked fruits. A little cardboard? Again, this entry could be that of a Saint-Julien, then the wine evolves in the mouth, less loose than Gruaud Larose, suave and melting with a slightly cardboard taste. Rich and wrapped tannin clean with the vintage, with a soft taste and a low acidity.
