Occasional Wine Note:  Another world famous "Super Second" from Bordeaux. The 2nd refers to this being considered a 2nd growth from the Classification of 1855, which is supposed to mean that these are not as good as the 5 1st growths - Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, Latour, and Haut-Brion. The reality is that these are all epic wines and this just another fantastic example of what these Bordeaux Chateau can produce.

    If you want to know what St.-Estèphe smells like, this is it. Aromas of spices, black truffles, forest floor, dried strawberries and tar. It’s full-bodied yet pinpointed on the palate with fabulous density and richness. It’s opulent but in a reserved and checked way. This needs at least five or six years to come around, but it’s already fantastic. What harmony and structure. Try in 2022 if you can keep your hands off it!

    This is an immensely dense wine that is going to be a classic. The dark tannins are still lined with wood aging but that will go because the fruit underneath is also just as dense and intense. Blackberry, black plum and damson plum give power and sweetness. This is a great wine with huge potential. Drink from 2028. Cellar Selection
