Love it! Not a super long finish, but full of berries, baking spice, tobacco leaves (for sweetness), and cedar on the nose. — a month ago
Decanted for 1,5 hours, jamy nose, cassis, black currant, earth, great complexity on the palate, tobacco fruit, earth, quite long finish, perfect right now — 3 months ago
Smooth with no unpleasant aftertaste. Light but complex. — a month ago
Dark brown/ ruby in color with a wide brick rim.
On the nose blackberries, plums, oak, earth, vegetables, wet leaves, herbs, black pepper, forest floor and light metals.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, tobacco leaf, vegetable and black pepper.
Short finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
I'm pretty sure I would have liked it much better 10 years ago, but this 40 year old Bordeaux is still drinking very nicely. So nice to see that.
I did not decant it, and it didn't last for more than an hour. After 15 minutes of airtime, tannins show up and bring more structure to the wine.
This gem is from the great 1982 vintage, and drinking these kind of wines is always a great experience. It's like a history book in a glass.
Thank you John for sharing this with me.
Really enjoyed it by itself, and paired very nicely with a stinky Camembert cheese.

Bought a bottle and loved it so much that we went back and bought 3 more. Nice and smooth. Very good with either fish or beef. — a month ago
