Tasting Notes

Score: 88Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

The 1985 has reached full maturity quickly. It is an excellent, nearly outstanding example of a juicy, succulent Pauillac oozing with sweet cedar, herb-tinged, black currant fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, and a supple, nearly opulent texture, this wine is intensely charming and delicious. The only negative is the wine's short finish, which suggests it needs to be consumed over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: Now-2004. Last tasted 10/97
