A de Luze et Fils bottle, bottom neck fill, good cork. Ruby, thin rim. Some leather and cassis, cedar, elegant and tobacco. Good acidity, lean body, tannins gone, some metal but seems it's dissapearing with air, a good wine, but a bit short finish. 83
Broadbent: Penetrating bouquet; full-bodied, rich, long, still tannic. ****
Clearly this was not a perfect bottle.
