Quite a strong showing for this wine. Medium/full bodied, and ready to drink, the wine is refined, juicy, elegant, classic and reserved. Yet, the blend of tobacco, cedar and cassis is everything you look for in Pauillac. There is fruit, freshness, and character. You can think of this as a Freshman Latour which drinks well early in life.

This is drinking great today. The cassis, blackberry and tobacco charm are out in full force. This has the refinement and character equal to many 5th Growth wines, which is really saying a lot, considering this is a third wine!

This has to be the greatest third wine of all time, from any estate! It's soft, ripe, round and stuffed with fresh fruits, spice and earthy characteristics. It's already drinkable too.

Forest floor, cedar and cassis in the nose opened to a soft wine with ripe, tannins and a true Pauillac character. The wine finishes with pure blackberry essence. For a third wine, this is quite an achievement.

Fully mature, the truffle, and tobacco notes come through loud and clear. Medium bodied, still holding on to its red fruit core, this will be best over the next few years.
