    November 23, 2017 - Had this yesterday as the showpiece wine and it was very good, if not ethereal like some of the comments on here. I have read a lot about bottle variation, which made me think that this bottle might have been a bit off when I first opened it but I realized that the thin, somewhat tart flavor was this wine begging for some air before consumption. Despite being almost 30 years old, this wine is still ever so youthful and should be decanted for at least a couple of hours. My first sip of this wine was probably a 91 or 92, but my last sip over 90 minutes later was a 95 and left me kicking myself for not opening earlier but also hopeful for the other bottles in my cellar.

    November 12, 2017 - Just great wine. The old school nose, with lead pencil, cedar wood, forest floor, tobacco and cassis popped with no effort. Full bodied, deep and concentrated, the finish had so much fruit, you wanted to eat it! Truly, a fabulous bottle of Pauillac.
