1998 Chateau Pipeau, Saint Emilion Grand Cru
Tanners. B.

Some woody and licorice notes; dark berries, cassis, dark plums; some undergrowth / rustic notes, all rather muted. Drying acidity, some fruit still there but feels musty and isnt bright anymore; light rancid even cooked note about it. Tannins still persisting with dying fruit, unfortunately unbalanced.
