Over four years since I last drank this, and it's as good or even better than I remember. I think some might be hesitant to rate this higher because it is not a tete de cuvee from a big house, but I can honestly say this is right up there with the best bottles of Champagne I've had in my life (and I've had a bunch.) Drained the entire bottle myself, and trust me when I say that doesn't happen very often.

Drank a while ago so I don't remember specifics, but I do recall enjoying this very much. Excellent bottle of mature barolo.

This wine is fully mature but by no means over the hill. Palate was a bit shy at first, but it really opened up beautifully over the course of a few hours (did not decant). Excellent wine.

Great fill, cork in perfect shape. Wasn't yielding much when opened and tasted at 7, so I decanted when I got home at 9. Finally started to stretch its legs when I sat down to eat around 9:30 and got better with each glass until the bottle was drained around 11:30. One of the tastiest wines I've had in quite a while. Fortunate there wasn't a second bottle on hand as I probably would have drained that one, too.

I am guessing that those who criticized this wine simply didn't give it long enough to open up and show its stuff. The first few sips were indeed rather unpleasant, but it got better and better the longer it sat in the decanter, and was still improving 3+hours after opening. based on this showing I will keep my other bottles buried in the cellar and revisit in a few years. Great potential here, I think.

Bit of brett funk upon opening that blew off after a few minutes in decanter. This was opened at the end of a meal, so didn't have as much time with it as it deserved, but it's drinking very well now and seems to have the stuffing to improve for several more years. Wish I had more of this.

Fantastic wine. embodies everything that is great about '85 vintage and the drouhin house style.

If served blind, I would never nail this as Italian, but have to admit it's pretty damn tasty. For $50 this is solid.

I don't have enough experience with young cristal to say how much this will reward cellaring, but it's already approachable and drinking very well. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

Still memorable some five years after drinking it. A one off bottle from Europe that turned out to be one of the best bottles of Champagne I've ever drunk.

Tannins are completely gone, but still a nice core of fruit and sufficient acidity to support it. This has been fully mature for years, but should continue to drink well for many more years. Very nice.

started out quite tight but got better and better the longer it was opened. this is a seriously good bottle of riesling that should continue to improve.

Dark, monolithic, unevolved. Not particularly fun to drink. Based on what others have written i wonder if this would have opened up if we had given it more time.

A nearly flawless bottle of mature white burgundy. Still very vibrant, with plenty of fruit and great balancing acidity.

Wish I had more.

These is drinking perfectly right now, as I would imagine many other '98s are. Classic mature CDP aromatics, beautiful texture & mouthfeel, great balance and a nice long finish. Outstanding!

Some bottles of this seem to be advanced, but this one was perfectly mature and drinking very nicely.

This is drinking really well right now, without any sign of the greenness that some folks find in 04 red burgs. Of course, I don't think I'm particularly sensitive to this flaw, so it could actually be there. I think premature aging is a much more serious problem with the 2004 reds (see Leroy's wines).

One of the best bottles of champagne I've ever drunk. Needed a good hour or so to settle down, but once it did it was staggeringly good. Fruit and acidity in perfect harmony, amazing complexity and a finish that just goes on and on. Wow.

Very pleasant and surprisingly easy drinking, this appears to be fully mature and is nothing like the tannic blockbuster that Parker describes.

Color more brick than ruby and even showing some amber at the rim, but on nose and palate this is not showing any signs of deterioration. Niether super complex nor one-dimensional, this is simply a well-made and very satisfying mature red burg with a great balance between the fruit and acidity.

Hardly profound, but this is a really nice, pleasant CDP still drinking really well. Plenty of peppery, granache fruit, sufficient structure and a decently long finish.

Was able to push the cork in with my thumb so half expected this to be oxidized. But the color looked very good and this turned out to be an extremely fresh and delicious bottle. Still lots of fruit balanced by ample acidity. Very nice wine.

Very nice, easy drinking Pauillac that's been mature for years and should probably be drunk up soon. Was fading somewhat by the last sip but overall a very good wine.

Was lucky enough to drink a bottle of this a couple years ago and this bottles was just as good as that one. Last sip was definitely the best so be sure to give this one plenty of air.

Classic middle weight Barolo at peak of maturity. The best 93s from Piedmont are drinking very well right now.

Continuing the nearly uninterrupted string of disappointing Jadot reds, this one was dull, lifeless, underfruited and not compelling in any way. Down the drain it went.

Very full and rich but almost completely lacking in acid. To my palate this is woefully out of balance and I couldn't drink more than a single glass.

Did not expect much from this so was not terribly disappointed when its unimpressive showing. Still drinkable, but definitely fading fast and not offering a whole lot of drinking pleasure at this point.

Really solid if unspectacular burg that several casual wine drinkers found to be quite delicious. To me it lacks complexity and the oak sticks out a little bit, but I still enjoyed it.

A wonderful wine that illustrates perfectly why scores are frequently useless. Upon opening it was a bit lean and acidic but after about 30 minutes the fruit came around and it drank perfectly thereafter. As lovely as this is on the palate, however, it's not particularly long or powerful and is really more about the aromatics. So while an objective critic may consider it to be under fruited and only score it in the low 90s, if you have a nose for well made, mature wines from the Cote de Nuits then you're going to chose a wine like this over any number of 100pters from other regions.
