    October 20, 2019 - Aerator into decanter for 30 minutes. Cigar box, crème de casis, black currant, silky smooth, 25 second finish.

    October 19, 2019 - Presque 30 ans et encore des années à bien se tenir. Au départ, le nez est dominé par la cuir, mais En s'aérant, le nez se complexifie grandement. Des notes de tabac, vanille et floral apparaissent et s intensifient. En bouche, il est puissant mais tout en rondeur. Beaucoup d ampleur et de longueur. Du grand Bordeaux.

    October 12, 2019 - Gorgeous. More herbaceous than I remember.

    September 15, 2019 - One of the most memorable Bordeaux I have ever had. Decanted for about an hour. Started thin and delicate with some light secondary notes and then gradually unfolded into a complex powerhouse of smoke, tobacco, oak, and mineral notes. So rich and complex it was difficult to drink this in any great quantity or at an appreciable speed. At one point it was like smoking a cigar. Minutes long finish.

    August 3, 2019 - Regular dinner group (@ JvT): Beautiful, mature, luxurious and lush bouquet with tobacco and vanilla. Complex and elegant. On the palate tobacco, a touch of sweetness, pleasant vanilla and some barnyard. Beautiful acidity and soft tannin. Delicious and fully mature wine.
