A legendary wine! After 36 years, this bottle still shows fruit. Aged fig, dark currants, sweet cassis with notes of tar/charcoal bricks with undertones of cocoa espresso. I’d like another one, please.

In a perfect place though a little disappointed in the length. Still a very fine wine.

Deep garnet red, no bricking on the edges. Layered nose with a touch of brett, bright cherries, perfume and forest floor. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Smooth and elegant attack with perfumed notes, crushed gravel and dried cherries. Excellent backbone and dry, long finish. Drink till 2032.

Still so much power here. Tannins fine and polished giving a round succulent feel. Charred earth, blackberry, cassis, tobacco, graphite, rusty iron? Writing this a few days after the fact but needless to say, spectacular.
