Label Slightly damaged
(7-2016) Deep in color, it has a gorgeous bouquet of black fruit, potpourri, graphite and melted tar. There is warmth here, but it does not impede upon the articulation of its origins in Pauillac. The palate has clearly melted in recent years, and maintains superb balance and weight. Sure, as Robert Parker himself remarked, it is evolving at a glacial pace—slower than the 1998 tasted alongside. That means its pleasure is going to be prolonged over many, many years.
(06-2005) Colorful and a little evolved. Animal, intense, fruity and powerful nose at the same time. Superb freshness. Very nice taste. Melting and caressing body. Very aromatic. Fine and delicious tannins. Lots of pleasure and no angle in the mouth. Well done. An impeccable bottle brought by the owner during a dinner during Vinexpo 2005.
(4-2010) Big and sweet and round - seems fuller, richer and a bit older and dustier than the 1989 served alongside. Very long and powerful. Wonderfully rich and opulent. Sweet and perhaps a little bit simpler than the 1989 - though it would work better than the 1989 with richer food.
