With 12.5% alcohol, the 1989 Chateau Prieure-Llichine Grand Cru Margaux scored 18+ Dionysian Points. It cost $20 back then. It was decanted just half an hour before serving. It opened up for another hour and a half with cassis, smoky leather, and aromas of Virginia pipe tobacco.
The black fruits from the Cabernet were still there. The wine, at 31 years old, could have gone another decade. In Vino Veritas.
