    August 24, 2019 - Keller Pettenthal Großes Gewächs - full vertical tasting (2009-2017) (@Private location): *** view note in context of full tasting ***
    Glass: Gabriel Standard
    PnP, not decanted. Unfortunately, served a bit too cold. Sexy Margaux nose, wonderful silky texture, great fruit and tertiary aromas (leather, tobacco, spices). Lively, well integrated acidity. Veery long and lingering. 94-95

    August 24, 2019 - Another good showing for the 82 Margaux, this bottle shows a really intense, pencil and raspberry focused nose. Not hugely complex, but wonderful presence and depth. Surprisingly strict tannins, but do I think that just because the 82 Mouton is in the next glass? Tough to say. Plenty of time ahead for this.

    August 17, 2019 - A recent purchase from Wine Watch from a private collection, the price sticker from a local liquor store said “$68,” so it must have been purchased soon after release. It looks mature to advanced due to the rusty color at the edge. I figured it would be either great or terrible. It was closer to great. A positive sign is that it improved in the glass for over an hour, then leveled out for the next hour. At first the rustic side of this vintage predominated but as it breathed, like a commercial airplane at 34,000 feet, it softened and became smoother,
    proving again that the blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is greater that the sum of the parts. Nicely perfumed, complex, intense and well balanced. An excellent ‘82 Margaux - but still not a perfect example. At this age, it won’t improve and it won’t last forever.

    May 25, 2019 - Complex nose with cedar, graphite, white pepper, soft fruit and some soil tones. Still some tannins here on the finish. Good bottle. 95+
