Decanted this one; volatile organic noted but quickly dissapated. Short cork without markings, in reasonable shape. This bottle was negociant bottled in London (Corney and Barrow, LTD). There was fruit up front, really quite nice then longer finish with some woodiness, graphite tones.
Pre-Birthday Lynch Bages Warm-up (Bouchon (Yountville)): Did not decant; initial organic aromatic (ethyl acetate) took a while to blow off. This bottle was negociant bottled in London (Corney and Barrow, LTD). After an hour it came alive, fruit was present, but the presence was austere. Will decant the next one.
