One of my favorite Burg producers who’s wines at all Cru levels are always balanced & delicious unfortunately they have become very pricy & hard to source. This had rich, sweet & sappy dark fruits with good grip & length showing crushed rock, game, VR spice, menthol & violets. — 5 days ago
Lovely in unexpected ways. Bright cherries and tea. Medium bodied. A long and subtly tannic finish. — 11 hours ago
From magnum. Decanted for 2 hours and consumed over the rest of the evening. Nice dark tawny color. Mostly translucent. Bright, bing cherry nose. Also notes of earth, red licorice, rhubarb. Big and powerful in the mouth. The exotic perfume grows as this wine gets time to open in the glass. Later in the evening this was singing. This large format bottle could easily have delivered more pleasure for another 10 years. — 14 days ago
A beautiful bottle. Nose of earth and fruit. Delicious taste. Tastes so young. Could age for some time. Just gorgeous. — 6 days ago
Reddish tawny, translucent. Youthful looking, especially when compared to its older brother the 1990 next to it. Tart Bing cherry nose. Also notes of rhubarb, earth, pepper and some spice. Young in the mouth. Still has some pucker and is very refined. Gave this 7 hours of air in the decanter and it needed every minute to open up and show its power and potential. Had wanted to check in on some big 93s and it's clear these bottles are built for the long haul. If you target the consumption of any similar 93s, be sure to give em lots of air.

Prior notes still apply, very consistent.
A beautiful golden yellow straw color in the glass.
Nose has bruised pear, dried pineapple, banana skin, honey roasted almonds, shaved oak and wet chalk.
Palate is bruised golden apple, warmed pear, candied lemon skin with fading oak influence. The acidity is just perfect to the mineral balance. This bottle has plenty of life remaining, yet it happens to be our last on the 2008's. 🤷♂️😢
Decanted ~2.5h — 6 days ago
