1999 Chateau Gruaud- Larose;
Ruby, hints of garnet rim. Great nose, starting to mature, cassis, cigars, leather and hints of stable. Staring secondary aromas, very complex. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, intence fruit, very elegant and complex, long great finish. 92
2005 Guigal Cote- Rotie Brune et Blonde;
Faulty bottle I hope, very rustick and unbalanced, not very pleasant........
2005 Harlan Estate Napa Valley;
Dark ruby, mocca, coffee, ripe dark fruits, cassis, a bit warm fruit if I'm really picky. Good acidity, a bit hollow in the mid palate, but very young, so this will come around, lot's of ripe tannins, long finish, keep for a long time. 93
1998 Chateau Haut- Bailley;
Ruby with tiny garnet rim, blackcurrants, minerals, still young, liquorice. Very intence, beautifull acidity, ripe tannins, and a truly long finish. Elegant more than very complex. Can still keep. 91
