Consistent notes. Dark ruby to mahogany color with amber edge; rich, complex and elegant on the nose and palate; black fruit, leather and haberdashery notes with a nice minerality and silky tannins; lovely persistent finish. Benefitted from an hour's decanting. Long life ahead.

Tasted side-by-side with 1996 Mouton. It was a tough competition. There were people who like it better than Mouton, but not me. It is very harsh yet and requires patience for at least 5 more years.

Classic Bordeaux. Wonderful nose of dried currants, cedar, crushed fallen leaves, roasted coffee beans. The palate was medium to full bodied, showing the silky texture of maturity with supple black and red berry fruits, coffee notes, excellent acidity and a nice finish. Classicly persistent, but not mind blowing, just great wine.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
