  • Decanter
    (From 1985 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Very deep red, some maturity; dense nose, prunes; surprisingly soft, concentrated, rather closed and tannic, lacks a little charm but still youthful, almost austere, typically Pauillac, chunky, still needs time; very good length.
