    August 24, 2019 - Excellent magnum of this, full of plush, polished red plum, leather, mineral, clay, and subtle red spices. Great textures here, both on the nose and palate. Wonderful focus, beautiful length - what's not to love? Probably best to start having these from large format rather than 750s nowadays.

    July 18, 2019 - Mature but not at all in decline, well stored bottles still provide that same sexy drinking experience.....a plateau this wine has been on at least 10+ years. There’s not an edge to be found, dark red fruited silkiness. Not the most complex, but it has dimension, and as luscious a wine as you’re gonna find

    July 5, 2019 - Lightly browning. Faintest madeirazation. Fruit faded but detectable. Elegant. Long, complex finish. Profound somehow. Almost no sediment.

    June 1, 2019 - Finally, an ‘82 Trotanoy that showed some of the voluptuous gorgeous fruit it displayed in its youth. When first opened it seemed too severe and leathery. But it erupted marvelously in the glass. Great concentration of blackberry and black currant. Blind, I would be hard pressed to guess Right Bank Merlot. Mature tannins give it the structure it needs, along with excellent acidity. Beautiful wine. Can anyone doubt the greatness of the ‘82 vintage in Bordeaux?

    January 27, 2019 - A lazy Sunday lunch - Bordeaux blind, Raveneau, PYCM, Yquem, Dom Rose and etc. (Eddie V's - Tysons Corner, VA): Fully mature medium expressive nose displaying subtle red fruit, strawberry, dry cherry, truffle, ash, mint and earth. Fully integrated palate, subtle red fruit, silky and fluid, medium acidity, earthy mineral and a medium to long shy red fruit driven finish with truffle at the end. The overall expression is a bit murky. It feels more advanced than the previous bottle. A couple guys like it a lot. The only correct guess for me.
