Deep tannin, dark fruit. Opened up very slowly. Bottle variation though; not sure if each “specimen” is meant for another 10 years.

Velvety texture, elegant with dried blackberries, cassis, sousbise, cedar, hints of earth and dried sage leaves with just a subtle animalistic character to it. Not as long or complex as the Rothschild of same vintage.

A true legend. Everything you could ever want in a Bordeaux and had the finish been a little more pronounced it would be a prefect wine.

Much more advanced than Lafite with marked tertiary forest floor, approachable tannins. Drink or hold

Rich red and black fruit: currant, plum / spice, gravel, leather / well structured and brooding, princely / let’s revisit in middle age

From a good looking bottle with a top shoulder fill. Old red tawny color with light amber rims. Translucent. A nose that makes you smile. Notes of black cherry, forest floor, worn leather and a little barnyard funk that makes it exciting. In the mouth it’s still showing some fruit and it needs lots of air to soften its acidity and structure. By itself it’s good. With food it’s better. Don’t think it will improve with more age but given it was at its best after 8 hours of air, bottles like this tell you it can hold on for many more years.

Dark fruit. Very broad and opulent. With a lot of air, the tannins have resolved. Still a bit of a monster of a wine but the fruit is intense and very pretty. Lovely stuff.
