Ready to go and showing no signs of distress. If anything, it's still a bit compact, given the age and classification.

Like a quiet song sung by muscular Angels. All the goods here: Leather saddle, cigar, pencil, darker fruit, and fine but present tannin. Yet quiet. Like a whisper of the other side.

Bang on the spot where you expect it. Very satisfying and easy to drink. Classic old Bordeaux...

Still fresh and young looking and tasting. Elegant fruit with a a hint of chalk. Tasted much younger that Ducru Beaucaillou from same year.

My third time having this wine in the last year and while it was still amazing it wasn't quite up to the level of the last 2. I suspect just bottle variation. Still vibrant, aromatic and full of life. Still slightly tannic with tobacco, cassis, Forrest floor, leather and some nice chocolate and black fruits. I think it's at peak now but has plenty of life left. A wonderful mature Bordeaux
