Defective and flat fruit profile. Seemed more like black mold penetration since the classic TCA profile was not apparent

Sour red fruits, a little watery on flavor, dusty limestone, feels chalky on the tongue.

1995 Château l'Evangile from a half bottle. Still has that nice ripe red fruit, menthol, tobacco, truffle, wet leaves, and dustiness on the nose. Medium bodied, rustic, and at time austere. A medium length finish. Could benefit from a bit more acidity, but otherwise the balance is there. Still has tannins to resolve. Based on experience from half and standard bottles, this is a great time to drink this wine as it's definitely in its drinking window. My only concern is that as its fruit fades, it may become austere to the point that some may not enjoy it. But right now, there is a lot of old style charm that is easy to like. There's also no rush to drink this, as I'll bet the fruit stays ripe and in the forefront for a least a few more years.

Plum, cranberry, iron and leather. Classic Pomerol. This is probably as good as this one is going to get so drink up! In a very good place right now
