  • 1989 Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

    From an excellent looking bottle with a low neck fill, this wine had a red/purple center with a touch of orange at the rim. The medium intensity nose put forth black fruits, powdered mocha, anise, caramel, and a touch of forest floor.

    While this wine was pretty darn good at the start, it slowly got better and better with air. The wine was rich and ripe but also had a round and fine-grained texture. The tannin was pretty well integrated and gave a rounded impression. However, underneath the fruit there was a firmness that suggested additional cellaring would be meritorious.

    This wine appears to be just coming into its drinking window for my taste. While I will appreciate the additional complexity time will bring, others may weigh the current charms of power and fruitiness higher than I do. This was best after 7 hours of air. Thus, I expect an additional point or two will be warranted after another 10 years of cellaring.

  • 1969 Faiveley Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale

    From a great looking bottle with a 2 cm fill, this wine had a deep red center and orange rims. The medium+ intensity nose displayed black cherries, oranges, brown spices, and soil complexity. It had a 95 point nose.

    In the mouth, this wine was round with a refined texture and light tannin. It developed well in the glass and, despite its refined nature had good length. However, the fruit began to fade after 3 hours of air.

    I find this wine to be rather four-square when young. However, with adequate time, it is delicious. Time will not benefit this wine so drink up!

  • 1986 Château L'Arrosée

    From a bottle purchased on release, this wine had a red/purple center and red/orange rims. The medium intensity nose of mocha, blackberries, and soil.

    I'm the mouth, this wine was ripe and round with rounded tannin and some length.

    While the color of this wine suggests it will last for 10+ years, it is not clear to me it will be worth the wait. I am not detecting enough complexity to get me excited to cellar this further. While I could be wrong, I would suggest drinking with 4+ hours of air.
