Blanc*. More advanced than the rest of the whites from the '80s but still broad, exotic, and delicious.

Cork taint blurred how good this wine could have been. Still a but of life left in the old fella, weighty and rich with great structure.

Rich, viscous, intensely nutty, oily. Excellent showing just shy of perfection. This is the Blanc despite what app says.

Nutty In a super umami way nose is just siiiiiiixk. Complex. Old. Old. Almost sherry like. Intoxicating. Still has that sick acidic balance after 29 years. Bucket list experience. Off the charts internal aromatics. Still juicy after all this time.
