Good foggy night for some claret. This was simple but charming. Tannins fully resolved, lighter texture. Red berries, cassis, cedar, leather, spice, fruit cake.

Absolutely lovely Bordeaux, dark and redfruits, still somewhat primary fruit flavors, soft tannins, drinks beautifully tonight but should hold for another 10 years or more!!

I can’t overstate my love for the Cordier stable in the 1980s and this reinforces that passion. From a 375 ml bottle in a Gabriel Glas Gold, savory leather and a streak of mint play off brooding dark currant to deliver fine depth. It initially seemed a little dilute, but 30 minutes of air brought out the fine tannin and acidic structure it needed to frame the flavors. While fine on its own, it really took off when paired with a prime ribeye. A terrific final red for this challenging year.

Enjoyed this aged Bordeaux over the weekend. Probably passed it’s peak but still lots of fun. Elements of tobacco, leather, and plum.

Fully mature, starting its decline phase. Very nice wine, probably should have been drunk 5 or 10 years ago

From magnum, it is in an outstanding place right now. It took a couple of hours after decanting for the fruit to fill in, but once it did it offered what I want in an aged Bordeaux, with plenty of cassis to complement leathery and earthy tertiary character and a bit of meatiness, and enough tannin and acid to hold it altogether. A great example of the brilliance of the Cordier stable in the 1980s.
