Overshadowed by the Cheval Blanc, but still a luscious and ripe wine. Beautiful.

Happy birthday to me...from dad's cellar. Held up well! Thankfully not a dark moody Cab. Just what you would expect of an Opus of this age. We lost only 1 ounce to sediment. Didn't decant.

A great vintage for them, even better out of magnum! Lots of ripe dark fruit and power.

Consistent with prior notes. Needs a decanting to blow off bret. But then drinks beautifully, fruit, oak, eucalyptus.

Some Bret upon opening. But after 3 hours in decanter, really singing. Like aged Bordeaux.
