Flavorful 27 year old Bordeaux that's showing its age. Very soft and open-knit, with pleasant, classic old-Bordeaxu aromas of cedar and toffee. Still most enjoyable (in early 2010) but its softness and lack of structure suggests it should be drunk in the next few years. Was dominated by a 1982 Lynch Bages tasted next to it. - HK&GK 2010-01-03
