Klar, dyp, mørk rød med svak bruning i kanten. Skogbunn, lær, røde bær, noe blyantspiss, roseblader og høstløv på nese. Mild sødme. Bløt, saftig frukt med overraskende god vitalitet og friskhet. Fin dybde. Frisk, saftig syre. Nedslipte, bløte tanniner. Fin lengde.
Popped and poured. Initial big tobacco and earthy tertiary notes in the nose. Some fruit initially, but this quickly evaporated and the wine seemed to dry out and was a bit over the hill...as I would expect, given the pedigree and age. An initial surprise however.

(Château Lanessan) Mature, bell pepper and camphor nose; nice, mature leather palate with a hint of smoke; medium finish (poured blind and we guessed mid-80s Pauillac, so the age on this bottle was a surprise)
