Community Tasting Notes 5

    January 17, 2015 - A little dry. Not much on the nose, and not much more on the palate either. Not much evolution after 2 hours. A little disapointed with this bottle.

    September 26, 2014 - Old Wine Offline; 9/26/2014-9/27/2014 (The Room Off the Patio at Ruth's Chris, and My House): Minimal notes taken. Generally clean, but fairly muted and lacking in fruit and structure. To drink soon.

    December 10, 2013 - Bouchon complètement imbibé, mais sans impact apparent sur le vin. À l'oeil, le vin commence à devenir un peu "translucide" sans toutefois afficher une teinte orangé. Le nez est relativement discret sur des notes d'épices et de fruits séchés. En bouche, on perçoit encore plus clairement les signes de l'âge mais c'est tout de même fort agréable. Un peu mince, et certainement en léger déclin sans pour autant qu'il y ait urgence d'ouvrir. Non carafé et bu sur environ 2 heures, le vin n'a pas semblé changer beaucoup en cours de route. Un peu déçu de ce que me donne cette bouteille, mais tout de même une belle expérience.

    August 18, 2010 - Got it recently from a new wine merchant and brought to a wine lunch. All of us were impressed by this rare bottle.
    Mature claret with brownish tinge, complex and mature nose of leather and spice. Although the fruits are almost dried up, it still has powerful palate and retained good acidity, lingering mouthfeel with leather and dried spice, great length of finish with pleasant tannins.

    September 25, 2009 - Nez aussi remarquable que les 2001 et 2004 sur les petits fruits et les fleurs. En bouche, légère masse fruitée, aspect sanglant (du Mouton Rothschild 1978) mais totalement équilibré. Finale assez courte. Un peu mince quoique très fin, raffiné et intense au niveau aromatique. Encore en vie!
