Tasting Notes:

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Served at the property, it has been some ten years since I last tasted this off-vintage First Growth. At 42-years of age, is offers a simple bouquet of wild hedgerow, sous-bois and a musty, second-hand cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with light grainy tannins and a pleasing soft texture. Strangely, it feels more aligned to a merlot-dominated wine rather than a Cabernet at the finish. This bottle of perfect provenance was sound, but I suspect that others will be in decline. Drink now. (NM, Wine Journal) (11/2012)

Wine Spectator

Has an aroma like an aged Burgundy, with cherry and spice; flavor is mature, soft, very elegant. Drinkable now. (11/1991)
