Like all the other bottles, this was excellent. Red berries with typical earthiness. Not forced, it was subtle and refined. At peak now but no hurry to drink remaining bottles.

A private tasting and dinner at a friend’s (London, UK): Classic Pessac-Léognan in every respect, medium weight (13% ABV), ripe fruit and warm gravel balanced by refreshing acidity and satiny tannins, smoky oak and a hint of spice, harmonious and poised in an understated style, mature finish with good length. At peak. What Graves is all about. Obviously a bit more developed than the magnum brought by Olivier Bernard to the the winemaker’s dinner after the UGCB tasting in Amsterdam in March 2016, but a sterling performance none the less.

Bordeaux theme dinner at La Barca. Drank over 2 hours.
Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of gravelly stones minerality, steely iron minerals, blackberries, fresh dark red cherries. Developing.
On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol (13%), fine integrated high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of fresh dark red cherries, black cherries, blackberries, gravelly stones, iron minerality. Long finish.
Very good quality. Elegant classic claret. Fresh fruits with no greenness. In a good spot now and will continue to develop over the next 4-5 years.
