Community Tasting Note

  • oldwines Likes this wine: 95 points

    December 24, 2019 - In my cellar since release. Decanted at 4pm and tasted over the next 6 hours and with Christmas Eve dinner. Medium garnet color with no bricking. Nose was very expansive with floral tones, earthy leather and sous bois and a red fruited undertone. Palate still had some tannic structure and bright acidity. Flavors included red cherry, red currant and red plum in layers with earthy leather and tobacco throughout. Very long finish. Delicious throughout the night but eclipsed for just a few magical moments by the ‘70 Ch. Lascombes.
