a little bit over the edge but still very very pleasant and enjoying. Garnet color witnessing the vintage, still intense hints of oaked bordeaux at the nose, powerful ripe red fruit at the palate. Smoothed acidity and round faded tannins. Top QPR at 25 eur. 91+
Very pleasant surprise. Strawberry, wild red cherry, milk chocolate, cedar box nose with just a touch of mineral note. The palate is balanced with very fine tannins still present. Good mid-palate and decent finish. Very enjoyable now. Time to drink up.
Deb bought this in Pomerol in 1997, but this bottle did not hold up. Rather thin black fruit, little tannin, not much of a presence in the mouth, and not much reason to drink it. Disappointing, but perhaps bottles that had been stored better will still show well.
