    August 26, 2017 - Nose was showing it's age with a little dusty funk. Palate was more mature Bordeaux with hints of dried herbs. Time to drink up

    May 4, 2017 - From Art's cellar. Wonderfully mature St. Julien. Color had started to go orange on the rim, good clarity. Red currant notes on top of forest floor and a hint of tarragon. In the mouth, the wine was smooth and integrated, no sharpness and a wonderfully long finish. Only bottle I had but it paired well with the prime rib.

    December 4, 2016 - By avec le 1998 en parallèle. Très similaires, bons et ronds, pas particulierement puissants. Le 88 même un peu plus frais après 2 heures.
