A pretty nose with soft mature plummy fruit, dried cherries, a gentle bloodiness. The palate has good fully mature fruit but a slightly tart and drying finish.... this improved a lot on the finish with food. Supple and quite generous. Good!

Like a nine volt battery on the tongue. Weird, yet shocking.

Elegant, complex and fruity. Just a great great glass of wine. Want to try as many vintages as possible.

Oh doctor, this '89 VCC is insane. The length, the aromatics of pepper, graphite and this umami note that is intoxicating. Incredible Pomerol. #thankful

From magnum and more youthful than expected. Still great fruit and just starting to develop the more earthy, leathery notes. Tasty now but could get even better
