    Very, very good. I've heard this is one of the select few that Marcassin blind tastes against every year to gauge their own quality.

    Could not be drinking better. Mocha, floral notes, smooth tannins, juicy. Just great but sadly my last of this vintage.

    Something good to celebrate at work, so open 1988 Cristal Rose.

    Cannot recall when I bought it (ca. 20 years ago, kept at 57oF).
    It was OK, but not really great.

    So, so, effing good. Whole cluster, medium acid, tons of juicy, chewy fruit. Had it with a great quiche I made that also used my own bacon.
