Amazing stuff! We enjoyed it right out of the bottle (without decanting) and it was absolutely brilliant!

Maybe not the best wine I’ve ever had but extraordinary nonetheless!

Quite cool style, considering the year, still young, blackcurrant, blackberry, chocolate, some chalk in the structure.

HDH annual Bordeaux tasting: Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Chicago, IL): I think this is a little more resolved and showing better than a bottle a few years ago at a similar Bordeaux tasting. Like the 2010, this is a massively-scaled wine with plenty of graphite aromas on the nose. The palate is slightly soft but well on its way to resolution. Very complex and layered, with fruit, minerality, acidity, and secondary notes of Bordeaux leather and pencil shavings all in excellent interplay. Among my favourites tonight — I love how the 2000 vintage has evolved and is drinking, and this bottle is another case in point.

Lafite Dinner 2019 (Blue Hill): “Monster”. There is some star acidity and almost lean-like uneven ripeness due to discrepancy between vineyards at harvest. Lovely showing, backward with much freshness. 96-97
