Tasting at DRC. The colour was quite dark / brown but this one was recorked in 2009 with some deep cooked plum notes on the nose. It was vegetal and most of the berry fruits (barring a small tiny bit) was gone. Flavours were also quite vegetal with nuts (almonds) and also a tiny tiny bit of red fruit. The finish was quite long but i wouldn't say it was particularly pleasant. The wine is well past drinking and if you have any left, suggest you consume it now!
ERI Auction and Tasting (Chicago, IL): A case here of legend preceding the event. Naturally tasters clustered around after demolishing the famed offerings from Mouton and Margaux which, although a decade older, displayed far superior quality. All had to be disappointed because this brown thing was nothing, all oxidized and dried out, with no indication of what it once was, if anything. Any purchases of these wines would have to be for speculation only not drinking.
