Drank the whole bottle. Still in mid-life but has the seamless integration I look for after 25 years. Sadly my last bottle.

Still young and bright for 2 wines 24 years old. Elegant and balanced!

I think Bordeaux needs some new style, somehow unexiting to drink and too expensive to buy. My best advice forget it

I would have guessed this was 10 years old, not 20. This had a savory and aromatic nose with black pepper, toasted fennel seeds, slate dust, and dark fruits. On the palate it was integrated and bright (m+ acidity), not quite as complex as the nose, and the tannins still have quite some grip. While delicious now, I'd wait to see if this reveals any more charms in another 5-10 years.
