Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night. This was my contribution. Someone else brought a ‘96 Calon Segur and it seemed to just be entering its drinking window, so needless to say, even at 13yrs old (with a 3hr decant), this was young. The nose was full of saddle leather, herbs de Provence and underripe red and black fruits. The palate showed bayleaf and cherry swisher sweets (a note I seem to get often with St Estephe wines with age). A touch thin at the front, full on the mid palate and tart and tannic in the finish. Tons of acidity here as well. Unless you’re double decanting for 6+ hours, I’d hold another 5 years.

Just kept getting better with each taste. The merlot softened and provided nice round and flush flavors.

Ok but not killing me-more earthy and coarse than I had hoped for

エレガントだが、まだ少しタンニン強く、飲み頃はまだ先。

First of the several 2006 vintage bottles. Drinking well but should probably wait for several years. 2 hours after bottle opening, aroma still closed a bit. But very beautiful
