Critic Notes

Drinking beautifully now with loads of new wood but delicious and round with plummy, tobacco, chocolate character.--The Bordeaux 50. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1994

Score: 88-/100Wine Spectator

The 1985 Haut-Marbuzet has the fleshpot personality that makes this wine so appealing. A big, toasty, plum-scented bouquet offers generous amounts of fruit. On the palate, the wine is supple, spicy, rich, and immensely tasty. It is a delight to drink now, but should keep 6-9 years. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 5/90. Jan 1998, www.robertparker.com

Score: 88-/100Robert Parker
