Poured out of magnum. Still dark at the core with some bricking at the rim. An enticing nose of pine sap intermixed with dark berry fruit. A nice perfume with hints of forest floor. Medium bodied, surprising amounts of residual sugar, the acidity makes the mouth water slightly with moderate tannin in the background. Delicate yet powerful in the mouth, very enjoyable mature bordeaux that's drinking nicely now. Slightly short on the finish.

Auction bottle, held 2 years. Cork and color were great. Bretty nose blew off and a solid, firm leather and plum wine emerged. Held form for 3 hours, improving as it went. Rustic style, chewy and still holding tannin in reserve. 1989!
