    December 29, 2019 - Lovely bottle. Brick, ruby color. Masculine, classic cassis and iron nose. The wine spreads out on the palate. It maintains its classic profile - dignified through the finish. (95)

    December 7, 2019 - Wines tasted at Zachy's Chicago Watch Party (Formentos): A Bordeaux at the peak of its game. Should hold but no reason to age further. Full of mature plum fruit with cedar and tobacco. Fresh.

    December 7, 2019 - Zachys auction at Formento's (Chicago, IL): Pretty much fully resolved, this is a wine where further aging I suspect is mostly for academic interest. This isn't as burly and unforgiving as more modern editions, and the ripe fruit and resolved tannins give this a really nice silky quality. A little dusty but with beautiful dried figs on the palate and a fairly enjoyable bottle of Cos (I'm not a fan of the later ones).

    November 24, 2019 - from magnum, garnet edges, currants, dark fruits, graphite, cedar, fine tannins, long finish

    November 20, 2019 - Tasted blind in a setting that did not allow for notes, this wine was a bit restrained at first but opened beautifully with two hours of air. It was continuing to improve as we finished the bottle.

    This wine is in its drinking window but will easily last 20-30 years. I look forward to a more controlled tasting.
