Every time I drink this I realize it’s one of my favorite Bordeaux of all time. This is drinking beautifully and it’s all about tobacco, smoke and red fruits. Tannins have settled nicely and this is just stunning stuff!

Beautiful aromatic floral representation of Pessac Leognan. Neighbor to the more brooding Haut Brion.

Mulberry, dried tobacco, and roasted herbs. Meaty, mouth filling, and round texture. Tannins still fairly present, but smooth. Long, smoky finish. Outstanding to say the least.

Not the best bottle of this wine I've tasted. It was a little hollow.

3L 1990 Domaine Clarence Dillon La Mission Haut Brion. Big group dinner at NMD. Drank this alongside 1995 Shafer Hillside Select in 3L. Neither was really decanted and we should have. This was initially much better, but both went really funky soon after.
