I last tasted this wine about 7 or 8 years ago and thought it was one of the best Bordeaux's I'd ever consumed. It's still excellent but age has definitely muted some of its brilliance. Very attractive nose displays classic Bordeaux scents of cassis, smoke, and cedar. Fairly round in the mouth but falling off and with some slight dustiness in the charcoal/caramel/chocolate finish. I'd happily drink this wine every night of my life, but it's starting to show its age. - HK 2004-09-25
