Nose has ripe plum, cut red cherry, black currant, dried blackberry, shaved milk chocolate, old pipe tobacco, moist leather, dry oak firewood, wet oak barrel with fading volatile acidity on the initial attack. Palate has blackberry juice, over-ripe plum, dried black currant, over-ripe black cherry, wet garden soil, dried tomato with a lightly drying finish and still showing mild tannins. A recent acquisition, provenance is good but this bottle seems lightly undeveloped on the palate still, decanted 3H. Paired to Allen Bros. rib caps, cast iron pan oven pre-heated then 1/2 stick of non-salted butter over the stove with constant basting, 5M to a beautiful medium rare. Served alongside our garden smashed potatoes, nothing finer than the vegetables we labor. Wine Spectator: 97 points Top 100: 1989, Rank: 2

Constantly evolving, never staying still. An incredible wine.

Perfumed dusty rose, red cherry, red plum. Odd descriptors for a Pauillac but this showed like something different. Tannins perfectly integrated but still present, great acid, some rubber and petrol, but roundness of flavor and a long finish. Some tasters thought it might be a soft CdP. just amazing texture and body, can go on a few year- it was still evolving in the glass

Gorgeous for 90 minutes, then the brett won the battle.

Viva la France! 30 years of evolution, and something new with each bottle (this is 10 of 12). I'd call this iteration retrograde as it seems younger than the last one. Cedary and dusty with some sweetness, but more grippy and bitey than mellow.

Wow - never would have guessed this was over 30 years old. Incredibly deep dark red fruit. Still solid tannins - quite integrated, but still persistent. Very good acid on the finish, which is long.
