Tasted several times and each time an awesome nose of blackberry, burnt toast, dried blood all with stunning definition. Just soars out of the glass. The palate is full-bodied, beautifully balanced with nigh on perfect acidity. So fresh and vibrant, powerful yet in some ways reserved and keeping something back. Notes of tar, cedar and a little pain grille. I still maintain that this is one of the best Bordeaux wines of the 1980's, as evinced by the numerous times I have tasted this. Drink now...

Blackberry cassis, dark cherries, herbaceous, olive, liqueur notes, sweet spice. The 85 is still there but fading. Tasted at Cafe Lavinal which is owned by Lynch Bages. The Chateau is right next store.

'85 Lunch Box and a stellar array of dishes at Torc. Minerals, red fruits, mushrooms and love. Big ups to Chef O'Toole and his team!

Such a beautifully balanced & expressive bottle, the '82 is quite similar in style right now, but there is a smooth/exotic complexity to this one that the '82 doesn't express in the same way.
