    July 31, 2021 - the last of my bottles and in good time too as this is fading - wonderful bouquet and still with some length - lovely!

    July 15, 2021 - 18th of 24, opened 3 hours, perfect cork and level, just off the best, cassis fruit starting to lose vigour and showing increased mulberry element, lovely structure and balance, downside from here but no rush. F+ (18).

    May 15, 2021 - Nothing wrong with it, just a little tired and lacking in much interest..these are now too old IMO - my best bottle of '89 GPL was drunk in 2007..

    February 13, 2021 - The fill was into the neck and the cork was sound. Double decanted an hour before dinner, and it benefitted greatly from the air. Deep garnet turning to blood red at the rim. Classic GPL bouquet of dried plums, black truffle, bramble, cigar box; hints of roasted fennel and gravel. Medium bodied, impeccably balanced, with a silky texture, good delineation and grip, long and savory finish. Fully mature, and needs to be paired with food to show its best.
