See previous notes. This is absolutely ageless; the closest to perfect Baron ever, and that is saying a lot for such an illustrious chateau. An endless finish and still so much of a salient dark berry edge. Legendary. Drink now-.
This was a difficult wine to figure...very different than the '90 and '96 in the same flight. I felt this was a bit disjointed and paled in comparison to the '90. It did however have an extremely savory, sous bois component on the palate that I normally associate with burgundy. Quite a long finish.
Super Bowl 2015 (Roswell, GA): Garnet core with bright lighter ruby rim; pencil lead, wet earth, red and black currant, mushroom, cow pie, leather, very Pauillac; silky texture with caressing tannin, broad and expansive, raisin, red currant, chocolate; very good bottle, still youthful.
