Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines 2005 2000 1990 and 1982) this is a great classic from Xavier Borie's estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac... Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines 2005 2000 1990 and 1982) this is a great classic from Xavier Borie's estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of spring flowers crushed rocks black currants cedar and earth/underbrush. Precise and elegant as well as backward and foreboding it should put on weight in the bottle and evolve for two decades. Very concentrated as well as velvety-textured it is a beauty of finesse balance purity and nobility. It will benefit from 5-7 more years of bottle age.

Complex and decadent. Blackberries and black currants with fresh herbs on the nose. Tea too. Full body with soft tannins and an earthy finish. Juicy wine. Turns to pure black currants. Best in 2018.

Ripe, slightly high-toned aromas and flavors of cassis and chocolate, lifted by cedar and minerals. Then more dark berries and minerals in the mouth, complicated by a candied violet nuance. Not particularly large-scaled in what is a generally exotic, very ripe vintage, but intensely flavored and very well delineated, offering an enticing combination of ripeness and energy for the year. The long finish features a suave tannic backbone and repeating notes of dark berries and violet.

70% of the final blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon 18% merlot and 2% cabernet franc saw new oak. This is a stunner! Dark cherry red color with slight ruby hues this wine does not disappoint. Rich aromas of roasted meats... 70% of the final blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon 18% merlot and 2% cabernet franc saw new oak. This is a stunner! Dark cherry red color with slight ruby hues this wine does not disappoint. Rich aromas of roasted meats vanilla along with red and black fruits are complemented by pencil lead truffle and sweet oak. The palate is medium to full bodied has ample amounts of tannin and yet has enough restraint to pull this wine together. The finish is long and lingering. This is going to be one of those wines that will be hard to resist. Drink from 2012-2025.

This is a step up with ample black currant confiture and roasted fig notes allied to a racy graphite and iron spine. Very sleek through the finish despite its heft with a long finish filled with cassis bush and tobacco...

A complex dusty tannin wine layering smoky wood and black fruits with a the firmest dry character. Very intense rich dense and potentially powerful.
