Some meat, some potatoes, a red wine sauce - and a mature Bordeaux - what could go wrong?
1985 Château Siran
A bit barnyardy at first, but that receded to the background with some air. Then scents of autumn leaves, dried red and black cherries, graphite and dry tobacco arises from the glass. Very classic and very good. A fine earthy aroma. A fine maturity.
The taste is medium bodied, mature and dry with polished, salivating tannins and notes of cool black currants, tobacco, autumn leaves and dry leather. In a fine drinking phase. From time to time it is hard to beat a classic Bordeaux. A tasty bottle.
