Decanted for about an hour. Delicate, floral and some sweet fruit on the nose. This is a wine to be enjoyed and savored, which we did! So elegant, balanced, harmonious, remarkable. A certain sweetness to it. Will last for some time. 97?? The finish could have been a little longer.
opaque and dense purple colour, drawing thick churchwindows in the glass; the greatest nose of all set of 7 vintages tasted, slight green pepper cabernet touch, plums, dark mushrooms, and spices; aromatic, opulent, meaty palate with perfect ongoing fruit/acidity balance; a long haul, powerful 78. 96+
Excellent ruby color. Complex nose with rasberries and cherries along with tobacco and spices. Gorgeous, classy, deep and exotic with incredible flavors of black cherries, dark rasberries, licorice and red spices. Wonderful seamless texture with the underlying lushness of Pomerol. Balanced with such finesse and elegance yet also a bit wild with so much going on on the long, complex finish. I can really taste the vineyard in this mature but fresh bottle which should hold at this level for some time. Incredible juice and perhaps one of the best Bordeaux's produced in the decade!
