    May 16, 2020 - Drunk in memory of Denis Durantou. Truffly (or porciniesque?) nose, still firm on body but round and smooth, medium-weight, with spicy red fruits. A lovely, classic, old-style Pomerol. Begins to slowly fade after 2-1/2 hours in the decanter. Cellared since original release.

    March 20, 2019 - Buttery, corn, red grapes and rocks bouquet. Smooth, grassy, blueberries, green pepper and cedar palate. Warm with flattish earth, pencil aftertaste. Drink now; feel it is slightly past it’s prime

    January 5, 2019 - This wine was sensational from cask in 1989. It's taken it's time to come around, but tonight showed its stuff -- sealing wax, dark fruits, sensual texture with structure -- that's one reason why they call Pomerol the Burgundy of Bordeaux. Cellared since original release.

    December 16, 2018 - very attractive mature Bordeaux - nice evolution with a bit of cigarbox
