This bottle came from a very cold cellar and was showing perfectly!

This bottle came around, but seemed a little past peak.

Amazing. This is the perfect example of a perfect bottle. I would be generous in guessing 1990 but really is more like a 1996 in freshness. Might be my wine of the year!

From a bottle with a slightly sunken cork but a good fill. Nice old wine color. Tawny with some reddish in the rims. Great nose that needed 4 hours of air to become impactful. But in the mouth the fruit and acidity never matched how good the nose is. A disappointment when compared to past bottles of this.

Dark and almost opaque. Notes of black fruit, raspberry, plums, coffee/mocha, old wood floors, tobacco and walnuts. Very balanced in the mouth. Tannins fully integrated. Long finish. With 7 hours of air this was good from open til the last drop. At peak as it has been for many years and can clearly stay there for more.

I feel closer to my dad when drinking this wine. I don’t know why? Big day at Jonata

One of the most compelling examples from a vintage that is, in my opinion, not measuring up.

Such a great example of Saint-Éstephe '82, I've always so enjoyed Cos & this is no exception, stored impeccably, which more & more is the only reason for great bottles at this age.
