Board-O,

This vintage was reportedly troubled by faulty corks. Have you seen this with the '89s?


Wine doc, not speaking for Board-O, but I have enjoyed this wine 25-30 times, and only one bottle was corked I can recall.


I don't have nearly as much experience with this wine as w+a, having had it 4 or 5 times, I think. Every bottle I've had has been excellent.


Just one more sip.

I've had 3 bottles in the last year and 1 was corked, 1 was off and 1 was great. I slightly prefer the 90 but they are both great when on.

I love the 1990 also. It'd be interesting to do a side-by-side.


Just one more sip.

I have only one single bottle of the 1989 Beaucastel... Hope it isn't corked! How was it drinking Board-O? In its prime?

Very nice. Clear ruby, no signs of age, no sediment. Opened, tasted a sample and let bottle sit for 30 min before pouring. Initial shtank blew off after 15 minutes. Gained weight with air, with earthy dark red fruits and near completely resolved tannins. Perfect match with seared duck breast.

Dok, the '90 La Turque was a replay of your bottle last September. An hour in-glass = Sublime.

I didn't take notes on any of the wines from this weekend but they all showed very, very well.

Glenn, the 98 Krug showed spectacularly for its' age. Not the laser like palate of the '95 or '96. This vintage is drinking very, very well right now. Yep, it wants time in glass. And time in the cellar will reward. But not the years of the 95/96. This vintage is very enjoyable right now.

I'm surprised, but good to know.

I will try one over the holiday season.

I hope these two were showing well.

-2003 Léoville Las Cases... What did you think? Somehow I ended up with 6 bottles of this wine. Confused
