A mixed 6 pack - bit of everything

All wines were either purchased on release or from reliable retailers/auction houses and always stored either at Domaine Chicago or my ...

I have had all of the above mentioned vintages. All those mentioned, the 89 is the weakest. I just had it and it doesn’t compare to the 2000, 96, 90 86,85 or 82. All of which are worth their prices IMHO. The 89 not so much.
