Birthday weekend and I pulled this magnum out from the cellar for a party. A quick review told me to put it back as the comments were not favorable and it is perhaps past it’s peak. So…. I opened it the next night and finished it the following. Being a magnum, it aged slower than the reviews, and showed typical St Emilion character. The tannins are washing, the nose is nice blue fruit and the balance is good. Not a stunner, but a good buy for $50 in Mag. The pro rating agrees with my 85, and I would give it 3 stars for its ability to hold my interest. It shows some restraint as expected of Old World wine and considering its age, pretty decent. I wouldn’t run out looking for it, and at $50, there are better deals.
