Needs 1.5 hr decant. Great Bordeaux nose, light tannins enough to hold, a little light but very nice... for me

This was a good showing from the vintage, still performing nicely with enough fruit and freshness to backup the tertiary notes that come after a couple of hours of decanting. Very good performance tonight.
Deep red colour with a brick red hue and a nose showing herbs, leather and morellos. Palate still has fruit to backup the tannins that start to smooth out now. Will keep feeling fresh for many years to come. (Probably best 2009-2024)

12/9/2017 - RED_MAN LIKES THIS WINE: 90 Points
last bottle of a case that has given a lot of pleasure, generally soft in character, rich earthy fruit nose, still very vibrant, lovely, palate has perfect balance, just rolls across the tongue coating the whole mouth, no holes, long finish at the back with excellent aftertaste and persistence, not above its station, doesn’t have the ultimate complexity and class of a really top cru but very very good just the same, as good as it gets at this level, so goodbye old friend.....

11/4/2017 - RED_MAN WROTE: 90 Points
excellent level and cork, dark cherry red with very little brown, still remarkably youthful, rich meaty typical St Estèphe / northern Médoc nose, palate of rich chocolately fruit, warm, quite soft, with drier tannin rather than acid at finish, smooth and well balanced, persistent aftertaste, very good food wine, still holding at a perfect plateau, little change from the last few bottles
