and the next day much mor e in it´s ripeness and simple but elegant complexity ! Showing "sous bois" like the ground of a dark wood with herbal essences, truffels, moshus.... but also soft sweetness ! I am overwhelmed by this Creation this turns out now like a real SUPRISE !

GREAT STUFF , althought this year is know to be not this like I experinced it ;-) please gimm me MORE !°
Classical on nose, when opened, pretty sure it was over the hill. But after some time in the glass: tobacco, cedar, leather, and little fruit left, besides some blackcurrant. Should been drunk 2 years ago, but still an old lovely bordeaux!
A friend had this stored when I told him it was probably well past its prime. When we opened, there was no aroma. We let it sit in the bottle and the glass for 30 minutes. It actually developed a subtle nose with hints of tobacco and currant. We let it sit for another 15 minutes and drank with a steak dinner (we had another bottle ready to go in case this was what we expected). While definitely past its prime, it was still very drinkable. A nice surprise!
