Community Tasting Notes (93) Avg Score: 89.7 points

  • This is another note of the same wine on the same day. The story is that we got both wine completely blind, not even knowing it was a Bordeaux. The first glass (which is my other tasting note) came from a 0.75 bottle and this note is from the wine that came from magnum. And no one of the six tasters recognized these two wines as being the same wine. The wine from magnum showed a beautiful and smoky bouquet with dark forest fruits and beautiful luxurious oak as well as a pleasant touch of barnyard. On the palate cassis, luxurious oak, a touch of pleasant sweetness, some good chocolate, beautifully fresh acidity and soft tannin. Also this wine from magnum is fully mature, but showed just a bit more freshness and a longer future ahead. We thanked our host for pouring those two mature bottles completely blind to experience the difference because of the bottle size. This magnum wine scored one point more.

  • Beautiful and mature bouquet with still a bit of cassis, graphite, cedar, tobacco and a touch of beautiful barnyard. On the palate mature cassis and other dark forest fruits, beautiful acidity and completely integrated tannin. A beautiful and classical Bordeaux at its absolute peak.

  • Second of the 3 horizontal 1994 and this was decanted for 2 hours.
    Dark garnet, almost opaque core with vibrant crimson hue . The nose is still tight & backward, showing subtle sweet ripe fruits, tobacco, minerals, hints of smoke and sweet vanilla oak. Slowly open up to more polished nose and Blackcurrant.
    Nice structured entry, blackcurrant, dark berries, dark cherry, fresh herbs, tobacco and toasty oak , still fresh & young with a savoury touch. Long finish and firm chewy tannins. Plenty of years ahead, no hurry to drink.

  • (From magnum) Perfectly mature claret. There is good fruit under a classic coat. A bit of earth provides warmth yet this is a wine without fat. (89)
