Enjoyed this aged Bordeaux over the weekend. Probably passed it’s peak but still lots of fun. Elements of tobacco, leather, and plum.

Fully mature, starting its decline phase. Very nice wine, probably should have been drunk 5 or 10 years ago

From magnum, it is in an outstanding place right now. It took a couple of hours after decanting for the fruit to fill in, but once it did it offered what I want in an aged Bordeaux, with plenty of cassis to complement leathery and earthy tertiary character and a bit of meatiness, and enough tannin and acid to hold it altogether. A great example of the brilliance of the Cordier stable in the 1980s.

Pretty. Black cherry, graphite, tobacco, hint of anise. Still vibrant -- plenty of life ahead.

Still quite youthful purple-red color, redfruit aromas, though showing some almost mature notes, a trace of herbal shows into the medium-long finish, very nice Bordeaux!!
