Parker said, “it tasted more like a first growth than an unclassified offering”, implying this bottle of this vintage was equivalent of a first growth status? What a joke, we should all drink Sociando Mallet from now onwards.
Nose was green with capsicums. Content was more like a beefed up grape juice to me, although the oak influences was substantial. Perhaps Parker was referring to the oak influence, as no right frame of mind would I refer this to be an equivalent of first growth! Joke!
