One comfort oneself with a mature Bordeaux.
1994 Chateau de La Riviere
This is a classic Bordeaux from the get go. It displays a medium deep nose with fine notes of driep up black currant jam, warm tiles, cigarette ashes and some not-that-fresh-stables-but-very-interesting-all-the-same aromas. Very good. A lovely soft feeling.
The taste is light on its feet and mature but still shows a fine black currant fruit and additional notes of graphite, dusty earth and dry leather. The finish is a bit short but not dry at all. Dirinking fine tonight but any additional bottles should be consumed sooner rather than later.
