(06-2009) A strong effort for this estate, the 1982 exhibits sweet aromas of plums, licorice, earth, and flowers. The tannins are slightly rustic, but the sweetness of the fruit, the broad expansive mouthfeel, and the wine’s full maturity represent a classic Bordeaux at the top of its game.

(03-2020) My last bottle of this gem. Medium-bodied, elegant and showing its secondary cedar, tobacco leaf, cherry, spice, cranberry and cigar box character with ease. Classic and classy, this is about elegance over power. Popped and poured, this is at or slightly past its peak.

(01-1999) Pale ruby, browning. Animal nose with good perfume of brown-sugar, meat, game and toasty oak. A full, glycerine-rich palate and plenty of spicy red plum fruit, the tannins are soft leaving it rich and full into a moderately long finish. Drinking better than my previous bottle a couple of years back, and really very attractive.

(10-2012) Not decanted. Evolved color. Fruity and fairly discreet nose. Very pleasant on the palate, rounded, juicy, smooth with taste and fine, ripe tannins. Normal body and length. A beautiful unit.
