Alex,

Some lucky people bought the remarkable Lafite 1988 when it was still quite affordable (Latour 1988 is a gem too, today).
Many Petrus, in my experience, were disappointing (but Petrus 1990 was gorgeous).

I'd like to compare this DP 1976 to Comtes de Champagne 1976 (a wine I really loved a few years ago, rated 97/100).

Jamie,

Mind many "pinot noir" and old wines ...
They are fragile and should generally be drunk with a minimum of decanting.

Jamie,

We allways taste afternoon then evening (the same bottle, hence with about 6 hours of aeration in the bottle).
Maybe a weak bottle ?
Nevertheless, not very exciting during the afternoon session (heavy - 87,5/100).

I drank Salon 1996 last week : a great wine (98/100).

Easier to drink, today, than the corpulent Krug 1996.

Hermitage Delas Bessards 1991 (June 2006) : great wine (95/100).
Hermitage Delas Bessards 1990 (January 2001) : great wine (95/100).

The solar 2003 is not as explosive ... (89/100) : unsurprisingly somewhat tastes like a grenache.

Bordeaux 1998

Jeff,

As always, read it as an instant picture ... (and somewhat a confirmation for Palmer 1998).
Sorry but it would be too long to translate it.

Next month, Beaujolais : the very best (about 60 wines) !

Château Margaux 1985 : 88/100 - 7 april 2007
Nez racé mais un peu fané évoquant Pauillac : cassis, minéral, havane, épices, vieux cuir, champignon. Bouche un peu avachie, qui fait plus vieille que son âge, austère, avec de plus un poil de verdeur. Pas vraiment satisfaisant à ce niveau de cru !
