From the Haut-Medoc, the 33-year-old Bordeaux scored 18+ points on the Dionysian scale and had 12.2% alcohol. It cost under $20 back then and was still deep ruby with a slight amber edge. Its nose had earth, leather, oak, blackberry, and black cherry. At perfect peak for the past decade.
Here’s one I wish I had bought cases of back then. After decanting the wine, it held together for three hours until the meal was completed. It changed very little after decanting. In Vino Veritas.
