One of the most unexpectedly moving bottles of my life. Was prepared for concentration, liquor-like extraction, Parkerized glycerol & nonsense—“great” wine in quotation marks. Instead? I got a ballet dancer. Smoky, haunting, perfumed, & one of the more wonder-inducing bottles of Bordueax I've ever tasted.

Youthful 82 love the vinegar and I love pomerol. Makes a great combination for me to appreciate this wine. Lots of acid and fruit. Amazing color for a 34 year old
