Parfaite maturité et excellence. Rubis profond, cèdre, tabac, fumé, fruit discret mais présent. Bonne longueur et présence soyeuse en bouche. Juste ce qu'il faut d'acidité, équilibre. Très bon vin. Aussi bon (ou presque) que le 82 pour moi.
A "lost" bottle found in my cellar, hopefully the last, but a nice experience despite that the bottle is older than its structure allows it to be. A good claret, earthy aromas, a little musty. Fruit is fading but it held well together. Should have been drunk a few years back.
Really pretty and expressive. Nice dark color. Plenty of fruit on the nose with backings of old wood/leather notes. Good body on the soft side and minimal (but not flabby) structure - mature. Good balance and a nice finish with the fruit holding a good bead and the leather/wood/funk notes harmonizing. Held really well for a couple hours. By no means profound, but a lovely mature Claret that performed above its class.
