Dark ruby, almost opaque. Doesn't look that old in the glass. Herbal nose with dark fruit, white pepper, gravel, some dry earthy dust. Shorter finish than what the nose offers. Good effort for the vintage. I guessed 82 Ducru.

Haut Brion Blanc 1988
One of the greatest bottle I ever had from Haut Brion, in my cellar from 1991.

Vivace, complesso ed intrigante.. Ancora una vita davanti sarà bello riassaggiato tra quale decennio!!

The blanc was having some trouble but it was still interesting. It wasn't resolved and showed awkwardly. All of qualities are there, but just not working together. More time?

The acidity in this bottle was really out front, almost bracing. It’s going to be at least 5 years before I open another one. I really enjoyed this 88 when it was more primary, think it’s just going to take time to resolve.
