Plummy, blackberry, dried currants, mulberry, lavender, cedar, tobacco and smoke.
Smoky graphite and mineral opening with fully integrated tannins and overall cohesion. Lovely floral and berry mix with mulberry, cassis and currant, lavender, rose, and violet. Strong showing on a 38 year old wine.

2000 vintage. Decanted and tasted over the course of two hours. Pristine, top shoulder fill and immaculate cork. Still tons of color. Medium body. Some bramble fruits in the nose along the usual damp earth, cassis, graphite/minerals. Consolidated power and grip with a 35-40 second finish. In the zone and worth seeking out now until 2035. Should be more affordable than most comparably performing 2000 vintage BDX online, retail or in restos. Hit it. You won't regret it. 12.8.23. — 12 hours ago
At Brane tasting. Acid and tannin still untouched but the fruit is on the wane, giving an overall slightly disjoined whole. Still - at almost 40yo, still an amazing effort. — 7 days ago
