Enjoyed at the Cos and Vieux Chateau Certan tasting dinner. Separated for easy reading.
Dark colour. Very complete nose, soy sauce, spice, pepper, green pepper, enticing.
Interesting palate - tip of tongue tannins and throat but no middle. Length was excellent. with full throat feeling. Clearly a big wine yet mid palate missing.
My guess is that this wine is able to show some of its characteristics now but the fruit is locked up tight. I would give this wine 5-7 yrs to unfold and my guess is that it will be stunning for its balance and length and develop into a classic long-lived wine. I have faith.
