2003 Château Rauzan- Gassies
APR 12 Deep ruby, quite layered after some air, has this herbal, leafy notes, underneath, floral notes, and below hints of coffee together with blackcurrants. Again a much fresher 03 than expected, here the acidity is quite lively, especially for a 03, a bit hollow mid palate, but lasts in the aftertaste, grippy tannins, I haven't had this estate in a while, and better both for vintage and producer than expected. The second 03 that hasn't been sweetish, are they drying up stylistically? 85

1986 Château Rauzan-Gassies
SEP 10 A level fill, ruby, slightly brick rim and orange hue, very mature, anise, starting plums and coffee, dry leather. Drying structure, ok acidity, tannins getting dry, short length. I would say badly stored bottle...... 80

1934 Château Rauzan-Gassies
JUL 09 Ruby with broad brick rim, mid shoulder fill, seems to be Danish bottling. Ruby core, broad brick rim. Figs, earthy, leather, some sweet tobacco fruits nose. Fresh acidity, hardly any tannins, sweet and sour, earthy, alive but very mature, long narrow finish. 90

NOV 11 Cork soaked, came out in pieces. B-level fill, pale ruby, orange rim. Floral, anise, redcurrants, strawberries, touch of metal, some pepper. Fresh acidity, lean body, sour cherries, very elegant. Falling a bit apart after 15 minutes, but way beyond expectations, especially after reading Broadbent's skepticism. 89
