1989 Bordeaux PNV Retrospective at Larkmead. Best wine of the tasting. Perfume. Baking spices. Wow. Gorgeous. Delicious. Lively. Tart balance. CS-driven? Tannins still pushy.

This magnum was super bretty out of the gate but cleaned up nicely. It can be hard to live up to Margaux even for Margaux.

Loving '89 still, such a beautiful balance between fruit/development/earth, there's a really great length to this one right now, really peaking.

Showing a little quietly, but precise and true to form. Violets and dried rose petals, cedarwood, graphite shavings, and brush.

Still on my mind days later... a standout from the line-up, energetic and not quite resolved in the most compelling way. God damn am I ever a sucker for wines with tension.

Opened 5 hours and wind drank near perfect. Classic Margaux profile with melted tannins and perfect harmony. Had this bottle to remember Paul Pontallier a gentleman of immense generosity and passion. He will be missed!
