    June 28, 2019 - 2014 Ramonet Lunch: Maderized but still some fruit, nutty, light bubbles. Drinkable, but clearly over the hill.

    April 11, 2018 - Small and simple dinner gathering with some special friends, no formal notes.
    A little cleanser after a small flight of red 1990 BDX’s.
    Lovely complex nose with grass, smoke, ripe lemons, fresh bread, baker’s yeast, marzipan, hazelnuts, honey and a touch of sherry that shows after a little while in the glass.
    Palate is very ripe and concentrated.
    Creamy ripe red apples, bread, nuts and again some grass and hay, with a tiny bit of oxidative sherry and cider like tones in it.
    Long finish with rich fruits and good acidity.

    February 9, 2018 - Nose is fresh and bright with a grainy pear fruit, mild cinnamon, and baking spice. Pleasantly yeasty, good citrus. On the palate this is fresh and zippy upfront, but seems to be missing weight midpalate. Haven't had this '90 in a while, and while this is very good this bottle did come across a touch short tonight. The DP Œnotheques were more memorable.
