1986 Château Soutard
NOV 11 Ruby, garnet rim. Cooked plums, figs and prunes. Very mature, on the verge of being too old, but I also know this has not been stored optimal, it has been left standing in an office for at least a year. Still a decent wine. 80

JUN 15 Ruby, garnet rim. Flat and oxidative nose, flat palate.

1985 Château Soutard
DEC 14 Rubinrød, tegl kant. Rødfruktig, fiken, lær, sjokolade, snev av jern på duft. Frisk syre, modne tanniner, intens, fiken og dadler, kirsebærstein, noe tørrende finish. Drikk nå for meg, langt bedre enn forrige flaske som var nært død. 89
