Dusty cherry and dense Christmas pudding nose features baked blueberry and dried red currants with blue spruce, Connecticut cigar wrap, sunflower, marigold and tea. There is ample black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and lacquered oak. Silky smooth and incredibly well-integrated layers of aforementioned spices with a surprisingly green tobacco note. Cedar and dried blackberry atop baked raspberry and peppercorn tart. Simply delicious and unwaveringly structured.

Pretty, softening up nicely. More elegant and airy than I recalled it being. In a great place now

Wow 1986. Humbly tasted blind. Tannins fully resolved elegant and pretty. I need to drink more old Bordeaux!

Puré Cheval complexity, a little sea foam funkiness. All in all, a sublime pleasure with the best of friends.

Lovely spicy Cab Franc aromas and flavors, soft tannins, drinking beautifully tonight, every time I’m lucky enough to drink a great Bordeaux growth I remember how profound these wines are, the 1985 in magnum was better, but this is super fine and very suave for an ‘86!!
