Pop and poured. Thanks Justin you dickhead.

I drank this from a half bottle last night and it was as tight as a nuns ass. After about 2 hours in the decanter it really came to life in a big way. Tons of tobacco, cassis and fruit and the finish was fantastic. This baby is still a baby but with air drinks great now. If you don't own any I would grab some of this under the radar vintage.

'04 does seem to be under the radar. Pavie and Monbousquet both were pretty enjoyable while young...but I am a fruit and oak. Even the Ducru was pretty tasty.

This is the first of the 04 big boys I've tried and I know $200 is a lot to pay for any wine but this is a first growth and I've seen them for $179....IMO this wine is and will be worth it.

It opened up after only 2 hours in a decanter? Wow.
