One Young & One Aged Bordeaux

2015 Château d´Agassac
I have always have had a soft spot for d´Agassac. My notes goes back to the 80´s with a lot of found memories. The 15 sports a fine, low keyed intense nose with notes of red and black currants, undergrowth, spices, leather and graphite. Very, very good.
The taste is medium bodied with perky tannins, a fine warmth and notes of ripe red and black currants, chrushed rocks, dry tobacco and pencil shavings. A fine, old school Bordeaux that will need 6+ years in the cellar.
88p   (tasted 2019/05)

1986 Château De la Riviére
Last tasted last summer and this bottle feels a tad more mature but still delievers lovely mature aromas and a velvety, long finish.
