September 7, 2016 - Deep garnet. Nose is intense with minerally, smoky black fruit, slight funky edge which blows off with time. Medium bodied, cedar, blackcurrants, smoke, minerals, refined tannins, excellent length minerally finish. Complete, classic. *****

September 3, 2016 - I preferred it slightly to the 1979. Interesting complexity. Biggest nose of the first 7 wines.

March 5, 2016 - Still holding up quite nicely, though perhaps has lost some of its complexity. Paired wonderfully with French Onion Soup and Beef Bourguignon.

January 17, 2016 - Medisinale toner og treverk på duft.
Holder seg greit fortsatt, om ikke noe stor vin.
