From magnum. The cork was slightly loose and unfortunately fell into the wine. So, the wine was quickly decanted to minimize contact. Initial bottle stink blew off after 30 minutes. The aromas transformed from cedar to red fruit over a few hours. Most of the structure has subsided leaving only slight fine grained tannin. The wine is medium weight and richly fruited - not unlike a recent bottle of 75 Cos. Great aged Bordeaux. Drink now.
An intensely beautiful color of a developed wine. The nose has something great like mint, cocoa, leather, vanilla, in short complex and big. The taste is a confirmation of the nose. Cocoa, but then yet even more chocolate. There are still the necessary tannins present but they are beautiful in balance. The aftertaste is long, quite lingering, and beautiful.Saint Estephe at top!
