    fantastic nose showing a top class Bordeaux. finish is powerful and explodes in mouth. quite long but slightly light at the end. still developing even after 4 hours of opening. bot 2 no diff from bot 1. less impressive w poh piah. nose continues to be v good. 06/10 03/11 moi lum bot 3 was again different. very exciting and young. again big nose and stronger finish this time. nice contrast with the pintia. 12/13 another contrast with pintia 05. has surprisingly developed into a more masculine drop both on the nose and follow through. decanted 2 hours and drank over 6. pintia was more feminine. 12/14 4 hours decant. Beautiful. More balanced, maturing nicely.
