Elegant. Soft tannins. Nice balance of nose and taste, and earth. Very covered fruit. Stayed with us over an hour meal after opening up. A wonderful old friend.

Fantastic. Everything you want in a 25 year old wine! If you have it drink it!

Still showing well. Nice bottle evolution...everything still well knit together. The mid red fruits shining, tannins completely resolved with a nice balance of nice light earthiness. @ Pebble Beach Food & Wine.

Reconditioned at the chateau. A great meaty and dirty example of aged Bordeaux. #morrellstafeducation

Still pretty young, although there is a touch of funk. A lot of tertiary aromas, with cedar and cigar box being the most prevalent.
