My contribution as part of a left bank vs right bank Bordeaux theme, with all wines tasted blind. I gave this a double decant of about 3hrs, and I have to say, it was beautifully open and accessible. The power of the vintage comes through on both the nose and palate. Aromatically, it revealed fresh potpourri, cherry, currant pipe tobacco, bay leaf, and leather. It sports a beautiful texture on the palate with a dense mid palate, wrapped in graphite, fleshy black cherries, more notes of tobacco and bold mocha at the finish. This should drink in this delicious window for 5-7yrs before evolving, but is only getting better.

Whoa, this is rock solid. Tons of time left but after a two hour decant it was sublime.

Holy wow! I don't know if there is such a thing as a "mouthgasm," but I just had it! It has a finish with which you could set the minute hand on your watch! Intense currant with wooly/velvety tannins! I think that they were trying to impress Parker... I'm sure they succeeded.

1.5 hour decant (little sediment). A killer dark ruby red/purple color. A 15th yr check in (more in the cellar) for this 2nd growth from the "Grrreeaat" 2005 vintage. On the nose: blackberry, little smoked meat, vanilla, forest floor, currents, and cedar. Taste: WOW!!! Black fruit, pencil lead, chocolate espresso, with a dry cedar/mineral finish. A rich and silky wine with some slightly grippy tannins...still young, and built to do some wonderous things with more age!! Would like to see how it changes on day 2, but damn it's all gone.
