I think I could peg this as an '82 on nose alone. Beautiful still, great sweetness; glorious Bordeaux. And , of course, so stupid to be required by Delectable to give it a number. Sigh.

The greatest of all the right bank wines I have ever had and clearly in the top echelons of Bordeaux from anywhere in any vintage! This had dark plum fruit, meaty savor, crystalline acidity and exquisite texture. As good as it gets, especially with steak!!!!!

Seamless dark fruit with some nice tobacco and licorice notes

This is what you drink on your bday, the stuff dreams are made of. When my kids ask me to explain why I drink wine I wish I could not answer and slip a glass of this across the table.

Drinking this absolutely superb classic mature St Emillion in the garden at Chateau Canon. Leather and delicate spice and soft rich flavor. Lasting finish.
