Feminine. Delicate, lilac, black cherry, cedar. Korintje cinnamon, leather. Fine-grain tannins, not quite silky. Wonderful acidity and length. Would drink now

This is all kinds of sexy. Subtle velvety fruit with real texture and luxurious soft cherry fruit. Wonderful balance and clarity and a beautiful long finish. Great stuff.

1989 Bordeaux PNV Retrospective at Larkmead. Spearmint, weedy. Very mature (past?). Fruit gone- all about bottle bouquet.

1995 just hitting it's stride - smoky earth, pipe tobacco, cherry and cassis in abundance, velvety texture and amazing length. Probably even more interesting in another five to ten years but why wait if you've got a couple or more?

This one ain’t coming ‘round again. Beautifully perfumed with earthen depth and elegant frame.

Beautifully perfumed, sweet red raspberries, damp forest floor, dried violets, dried red currants, spices, velvety tannins, long finish. 🔥

Gorgeous! Purity, length, complexity and harmonious structure throughout. Blown away by the freshness this had, from color to fruit character to energy on the palate. Carries the vintage well, structured yet showing incredible finesse right now. I don’t drink Bordeaux often, but damn when it hits, it hits in all the right spots. This will be even better with time IMO. What a wine
