We opened this bottle with both excitement and trepidation.
We were rewarded with a wonderful older Bordeaux that was still showing well.
The nose was showing mushroom, tobacco and licorice. On the palate there was still fruit (plum and currant) showing after all these years, with truffle and a little cedar on the finish.
A wine not to score in my opinion, but to contemplate the vicissitudes of life over.
