Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 100 RP.
"This wine is off the charts and continues to provide a level of exotic drinking and unbridled opulence that must be tasted to be believed. The wine possesses a spectacularly intense, penetrating fragrance of jammy red and black fruits, caramel, cocoa, soy, and vanilla. Extremely rich and thick, with layers of concentrated fruit, this sweet, expansive, preposterously concentrated and decadent wine is more delicious at present than the 1982 Pichon-Lalande . . . . It is as thrilling a wine as I have ever tasted . . . . Tasted 9 times since bottling with consistent notes." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate #102, Dec 1995
Provenance: The Méribel Cellar
Notes: Base neck, nicked and scuffed capsule, scuffed and damp stained label.
