Community Tasting Notes (average 89.1 pts. and median of 89 pts. in 9 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Anonymous on 5/1/1995 & rated 86 points: Still alive, but not so much kicking anymore. Was much better a few years ago. It is my last bottle and that is a good thing. It should have been finished already. I’ll score it anyway (3308 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 8/14/1993 & rated 89 points: Still lovely, but old age is showing now. The 1976 characteristics were well hidden in the past but now they start to show; medium bodied and just a little too much acidity. Nevertheless still a great pleasure. (3292 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 11/8/1991 & rated 91 points: Still going strong. Now at its absolute peak. You discover lots of new tastes and elegance all the time. A great effort, certainly for the vintage. (3767 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 7/27/1989 & rated 90 points: Still a great wine. Elegance in the long aftertaste as well. (3639 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 7/1/1988 & rated 88 points: Dark carmine with a brown edge. Deep and rich bouquet. Complex with a lot of nuances, cassis and good oak. The taste is full bodied, spreading in the whole mouth, with liquorice, cassis, and some iron. There are dry and young sticky tannin. Long and complex aftertaste. Overall a beautiful, but a little straight forward wine. Nevertheless it has a lot to offer and I would not mind having a case in this stage, because the wine has potential for several years.

 Tasted by Anonymous on 6/19/1987 & rated 90 points: I am a great admirer of this wine. It is complete. The tannin is lovely and soft and with at least 3 more years of power in it. (2092 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 4/14/1987 & rated 90 points: As my note of 5 months ago. This time I scored it even 90. (1964 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 12/12/1986 & rated 89 points: Complex bouquet. Cassis, liquorice, creamy, oak. Beautiful wine with a good future. Long lingering fruity aftertaste. (2087 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 11/3/1985 & rated 89 points: Dark red. Complex and very attractive bouquet with fruit and good oak. Soft, sticky tannin and good acidity. A lot of liquorice. Firm, full bodied wine with a medium to long aftertaste. This is a great wine. The tannin is perfect already and the wine will certainly hold for a few years. The aftertaste might grow, because at this moment it could be a little more abundant considering the structure of the wine. (2328 views)

Red Bordeaux Blend

Read about the grapes used to produce Bordeaux The variety Red Bordeaux Blend in CellarTracker implies any blend using any or all of the five traditional Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. As such, this is used worldwide, whether for wines from Bordeaux, Meritages from California and Canada, some Super-Tuscan wines etc.

Médoc

Vins du Médoc (Conseil des Vins du Médoc) - Read More about the Medoc
The eight precisely defined appellations of the whole of the Médoc (from Blanquefort Brook to the north of the Bordeaux built-up area, almost to the Pointe de Grave) may claim the Médoc appellation. But there is also a specific territory in the north of the peninsula which produces exclusively wines with this appellation. In the great majority, the Médocs come from the north of the peninsula. The great individuality of this region is that the number of vines has increased more recently here than elsewhere, apart from a few isolated spots where vines have grown for many years. Today, the size of the small estate has brought about the development of a powerful co-operative movement. Four co-operatives out of five belong to the group called Unimédoc which ensures aging, bottling and marketing a large proportion of their wines.
