Magnum. Cool mint over juicy blackberry on the nose. Reading younger and certainly more opulent than the '95 Cheval Blanc. Boulders, big gravelly minerality. Green nose still. Big structure, tannin actually not too tough. Lead pencil. Quite enjoying this.
2nd bottle in recent months. Drank with roasted whole Pyrenees leg of lamb. More approachable than the 86 Cos, this was initially dominated with cherry fruits, but the body built up over the course of the 3 hour dinner, and culminated to the toffee-coffee unmistakeble Mouton taste. Again, the last glass is the best syndrome.
