I have been drinking this wine out of half bottle, and this was the first regular bottle I have had over recent years. While this Pomerol is loaded, it remains extremely backward - hence the lower score. I would not touch a bottle for another 5-8 years. The half bottles are tasting at least 4 to 5 points better, and are obviously much more evolved. The full bottle exhibited a dense plum/purple color along with notes of cedar, forest floor, sweet jammy plums, black currants, licorice, and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied and powerful with high tannins as well as a rustic, massive mouthfeel and finish, it should be fully mature by 2015, and keep until 2030+ Release price ($165.00/case) Wine Advocate.June, 2009

Rather closed. Very dark ruby color, with a slight amber edge. Intense blackberry, earth and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of berry and dark chocolate flavors. Full and velvety yet slightly hard, astringent tannins. Still needs time.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2000.-James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1998
