This year we hosted the first seder (SEE HERE), but my Mom cooked the second. That means a very high bar of quality.
Parker 91 for the 2001 Opus One. “Tasted twice Deep garnet-black colour. Still a lot of primary fruit with dark cherry and blackberry aromas complimented by cloves, cardamom and a hint of mint. The medium to full bodied palate provides a medium+ level of very finely grained tannins and medium+ acidity. Long finish with lingering earthy / mineral flavours. Drink now to 2019. Tasted April 2009.”
The 1998 Haut Maillet was a typical mature pomerol. Tasty, but a bit sour.
