Tasted it beside 1982, 1983, 1989 and 1991. Pristine bottle. The 1992 was a lot mature than the 89, the color was dark crimson. The nose and taste was developed whit salty peanuts, brioche, orange peel, warm berries, and maybe some meaty tones with a hint of garrigues. This was a strange but good experience, would love to try it again.
Still some life left in this one! Good colour and an attractive nose. Some sweet berry aromas, iron and animal elements. Elegant and fading in the mouth. Starting out a little dry and tart, but gaining the last fruit with some air.
OK I'am Amazed It Still Lives. So, this was never avery good vintage and we are apparently in its final year or drinking wich is about right. A lot of brink-red rim but it still has a lively acidity and sweetness (tho nothing to write to the parents about) and all the tannins have smoothened out. Som I thought it was really quite nice, the suggested price was $40 and that seems to me to be about right; if someone offered me a case of this at that price I would buy it. I guess that the one downside, is that there is little of that wonderful secondary development that comes in great N. Rhone wines, perhaps because the original material was not great.
