A few late notes from my trip to New York in April.All wines taken over dinner, not blind, generally not decanted.
Very light style, full of vigour, light BdB style, interesting but no lasting impressions.

Light rim, now showing age, dusty, better on palate, light but with offputting dry metal tannin.
Lovely dry perfume, fleshy with full acidity, very plummy but not sweet, somethign a bit odd on the nose though, dough?
Dry woody nose, fresh, a hint of mushroom, very dense still, acidity too strong on finish?
Gentle, very fruity, no sign of age, a bit simple but strong persistent fruit, tannins a bit closed on finish.
Obvious move to the left bank... Cedar and smoky ripe fruit, all present and correct but not special, short astringent tannin on finish. Prefer the 1985 and 1986.
Quite stinky, metallic dark fruit, finishes weakly. Faulty?
Very bright nose, riper than the Barton, lighter tannins, ready.
Very full, perfumed and dense wine, great balance, perhaps just hitting its stride, or maybe still not there.
A bit green, but not strongly so, light style, but with big tannin behind.
Just beautiful on the nose, but tannins hit the midpalate quite harshly.
Spicy rich sweet nose, drinking so well now, but tannins are very soft already, maybe this is not one for the long haul?
(see all 2 vintages)
