A hit of band aid, pure plum fruit, very pure blue fruit. Gorgeously resolved, soft, pretty.

Earthy mineral driven and muscular quite the opposite of the 1985 , but has years of life ahead of it .

Tasted blind. Dark ruby and almost opaque. Fragrant nose. Notes of cherries, rhubarb, herbs and tobacco, some earth and some menthol. Pure and refined. Gorgeous. Guessed 1989 La Mish.

Outstanding, so beautifully balanced, there is a ripeness of fruit, in a great way considering the age, all round an excellent example of St.-Émilion.

What a special treat! Profile similar to an old red burg, earth, smoke, and so delicate.
