A treat. Dark in color, slightly cloudy. A powerful nose with dark, very mouton fruit. Incredibly aromatic, blackcurrant, mint,graphite, dried herbs, eucalyptus. The palate is extraordinary. So dense and powerful for a wine of almost 70 years. Dark fruit with a savory undertow- leather, thyme, sour cherry, dark chocolate. Really precise flavors and long. After an hour or two in glass there’s notes of coconut and soft wood. Extraordinary. Clearly there’s a lot of age on this but the sheer quality makes for a really dynamic wine. An exceptional bottle, and a teal treat.

This blew my mind too, witnessed it slip in my glass and totally fade away. Wouldn’t have happened to a 1982

Tasted blind. Dark tawny color, almost opaque. Slight oxidated nose with notes of cranberries, menthol, mint, camphor, and some brown sugar. Rich with crazy texture in the mouth. Medicinal and makes the face flush. Over the night this evolved and improved with more air. I think the last bottle of this we had was slightly better than this one. Still, an all time type of experience when you are able to sip this. V for Victory!

Only great bottles. But this is as good as this has ever shown. Superb and quintessential mouton.

Power, structure and full body with a nose of coffee, tobacco, violet and black currant. Blackberry, cassis and firm tannins on the palate with a lengthy finish

Dustiness and blackberry brambles. A touch of smoke. Palate is full of fruit blue and black, perfect tannins and lovely but restrained acidity. The 2016 is young but has beautiful gravel and smoke. Palate weight is so balanced. Finish is so clean and mouthwatering. One of the greatest wines I’ve ever had.

2nd bottle was the wine of the night, impeccably stored, still intense dark berry fruit intensity, outstanding.

Deep dark scarlet. Opaque. Nose offers notes of black cherries, pencil lead, plum, anise and old cedar desk. With several hours of air it offers menthol, cranberries, and becomes more profound. Still young though with only secondary attributes. Big shoulders and masculine in the mouth but tannins have softened. Still needs more time to add complexity. Lots of structure and a bit of dryness on the finish. Will check in again in 5+ years.
