Dinner last night. '78 Pommard-Epenots, '66 Lafite, '85 Beaucastel, '02 MP S2, '88 Suduiraut

No notes taken, just some brief recollections:

1978 Pommard-Epenots (Drouhin): Lovely floral nose, expansive with bright cherry flavor, just a little light, probably was better 2 years ago. 90

1966 Lafite: Great Lafite perfume, still plenty of tannin left, not quite rich enough, lots of life remaining. 90

1985 Beaucastel: WOTN A little brett which blew off quickly, wonderful fruit and complexity, ready. 93

2002 Marquis Philips S2 Cab: It's been said many times here. 92

1988 Chateau Suduiraut (1/2 bottle): Lovely botrytised nose, balanced, great with creamy dessert. 91

Just one more sip.
