Tea leaves and dried leather, very interesting to see it's evolution. Light years ahead of similarly aged cru bourgeois.

Practically perfect. This wine can't be 30+ years old. Old school, well balanced, just fantastic to drink this piece of history.

1st vintage for Opus taken from an owc that was released with the 80 vintage. Dark color for a 36 yr old. Very Balanced and elegant, fully mature drinking like a great Claret.
