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

Lovely and succulent. Broad, plummy and settled. Beautifully balanced and sexy. What a wine.

I’m not a fan of the 2003 vintage but this was really good. No stewed fruit, very elegant and expressive. Drinking great young

Tasting group last night. My 5th, Group 4th. Aldehydic, filmy, bing cherry fruit. Sweet? Nice body, good acid. Not a terrific bottle?
