Lot size: 1 bottle of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1989 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

A bottle with a water stained label, but which retains all the important stuff.
The level is good for age at In Neck.
The capsule (chateau embossed) is complete.

Tasted at the chateau, this is a far superior bottle than the last example. It has a potent earthy, almost Pomerol-like bouquet with cooked meats, white fennel, smoke, hickory and sage. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins that are finally mellowing with age. Velvety smooth in texture, it displays more vigour than I expected, a great sense of tension with that foursquare finish that is so “GPL”. This is drinking beautifully now. Tasted March 2011. Score: 90
