Well-colored crimson, faded rim. Capacious, scented and extrovert: antique shop and spice, latakia tobacco, sandalwood. The robustness of its youth now pounded out over the years into something more giving. An almost suede-like quality to the black cherry and cassis fruit; quite ravishing for an ’88. At once supple and nuanced at the end. Now – 2018. The ’99 Boudots from Tardy came off indifferent by comparison.
