superb! the rest is just detail... rich classy complex nose, showing maturity but no hint of tiredness, perfectly balanced palate, dances around the mouth with lift and elegance but also really fine concentrated flavour, long persistent intense aftertaste - just marvelous and a privilege to drink, on a long plateau of perfection
At home. Decanted for one hour and drank over the following three. Fully open nose of violets, dark sweet fruit, damp earth and hints of mocha. Rich and sweet on the palate. Not a tremendous amount of depth but wonderful balance and silky texture. Long finish emphasizing sweet fruit and earth. With additional air this didn't get much better but it was great from beginning to end. In a nice spot to be enjoyed now.
Lightening color. Glorious, perfectly mature nose with plummy fruit, caramel and herbs. Delicate, authoritatively silky feel. Understated sweetness punctuated by light green herbs and a long, whispering finish. Not the most assertive wine but at a perfect point of equipoise, balance and elegance. Older Pomerols...sigh.
