Second time I have had this wine this bottled was stunning . Vibrant , great balance, earth and mineral tones wrapped in a nice robe of cassis . Wow!

Not the best bottle, from a mid to low shoulder fill btl. Still showed some of the classic 82 Palmer that I’ve enjoyed many times before. Good to know that this wine is aging just like me. Smooth and clean.

Tasted blind. Light tawny but there's a nice brightness in the color. Great old Bordeaux nose. Notes of black raspberry, cherry, moist forest floor, gravel and a little mocha. Amazing complexity in the mouth. This has more going for it in the mouth/finish when compared to the 55 Palmer next to it. The 55 Palmer overall was a better experience, but this was best in class for its complex mouthfeel. Guessed 1961 Palmer.

Tasted blind. Tawny color, translucent with amber rims. Notes of black cherry, cedar, some spice and a little barnyard floor. Sweet fruit in the mouth, with tannins fully resolved. Guessed 1955 Calon Segur. Perfect looking bottle, the cork revealed this bottle was reconditioned by the Chateau in 2000.

Slightly stinky nose with faded red fruit and dried wood. Leather and roses. Slightly soured notes and a very soft, long finish. Shows it’s age but very charming

More mature, defined and complex than the 2006 today. More red fruit character, graphite and herbs on the nose. Palate is still very youthful and primary but there’s great energy and lift and a powerful mineral streak running all the way through.

More primary and quite a bit tighter than the 2008 right now but with more harmonious sense of tannins. Some subtle floral and mineral nuances showing up, but it has quite a ways to go in terms of showing multi-dimensionality.

Oh my ... my last again. I’m impressed by this bottle of exquisite Merlot. Drinking at its peak, in my opinion. Soft, velvet in the mouth, with a firm mid palette and a perfumed, lavender-like finish that intoxicates. Continued to improve and evolve over the evening and reminded me that you can’t rush a river...you must let nature take it’s time and then magic happens.
