January 7, 2016 - Lithe and supple, silky and red fruited with leather, sweet tobacco, spice box, wet rocks, tannins in perfect harmony. Seamless with great persistence.

November 4, 2015 - 2015 Villa d’Este Wine Symposium - Kelly and Kevin's excellent adventure; 11/3/2015-11/9/2015 (Villa D’este, Lake Como): Damp dirty cellar smell that remains. Red fruits, cedar and leather. Medium concentration and fully integrated tannins. It is not corked but definitely some sort of taints.

It is plump and full without a hair out of place. Tannins are relatively soft and it is a classy wine. It doesn’t have the most depth or length but is beautifully proportioned and a pleasure to drink.

December 19, 2009 - I bring my last bottle of Cheval Blanc 1980 to test not because of Ryoko's Birthday but for good friends at the Christmas time.
The nose's still seductive, clean fruit, elegant, fresh but can not hold on that long in the glass. Sweet, soft tannin, smooth, very fine fine wine indeed. Aftertaste is not complex but nice.
It seems the most perfect condition of my 6 bottles of them.
After 1.45 hrs, more fuller-bodied, not too sweet, delicious....I like it a lot !!!
Testing along with Ch. Magdelaine 1982.............A Nice Pair..................
Drink now - 2013.......................90+/100..............................
