🏅 Rating 92/100 (4,2🌟)

Mature Bordeaux aromas of dill, graphite, pencil shavings, earth, boiled carrots, candied cherries. Perfume you can't resist and get addicted to.
Fruits already faded away leaving rather flat but silky palate.
Improves with time spent in glass.
Delicate decadence wine.

Deuxieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855. Indicative blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 60% and Merlot 30% with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot 10%

Singing. Seamless. Great tobacco, dark plum skin and eucalyptus. Had another 20 years easy. Beautiful companion to my blue cheese topped filet!

Extremely expressive cigar box bouquet that just kept getting better and better. On the palate red and black berries with pencil and cedar flavors that were expanding like a helium balloon. Class in a glass!

Easy drinking from the start. Has not lost any fruit or flavor and the earthy flavors have started to come out. Very enjoyable and drank more like a 90's vintage in terms of freshness. #homesweethome
