8 Grand Echezeaux, Leflaive, 63/83 Fonseca, 1885 Blandy's: Ruby/purple. Very tight on the nose. Perhaps the least expressive wine on the table. On the palate, dense and tight. Cherries. Great texture. This was like most of the 05's I have had. There is a power and complexity that can be sensed, but the wine just doesn't want to let you see everything. Kept improving all night long.
