Dumb nose. Rich, firm, assertive, compact, with good depth of fruit. Rather rigid now, and doesn’t show much light or shade, and it could do with more acidity and lift. I suspect this is closing up, and need a good few years to unfurl and show its fruit. Long.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Rich, rewarding, deep aroma of ripe black fruit on the nose. Lush and soft on the palate, quite hedonistic, with tannins well hidden beneath layers of satiny luscious fruit. Long on the finish, very approachable early but with the structuire to last a long time.

Tasting: Medoc crus classes 2009

Elegant cedary/cassis nose, Really quite an old-fashioned style of wine, good natural fruit and middle sweetness, but is already showing a bit of age, but the richness of fruit will keep it going mid-term.
