...extraordinary nose of caramelized herbs, smoke, cedar, pen ink, black currants, and earth. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, plump, rich, fleshy wine with low acidity...
It's full bodied, with bay leaf, berries that turn to mineral undertones. It's full-bodied, with round tannins and a lingering finish of chocolate, cedar and other woods...
...high-toned, highly nuanced nose of currant, roasted meat, cedar, marzipan, smoke & tobacco. Supple on entry, then firmed by sound acids. Still quite unevolved...rather muscular style of Lafite, finishing with big, tongue-dusting tannins.
Dark ruby red. Mineral, berry and mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. A silky, seductive wine.
...very mineral nose without that much evolution. Very delicate mouthfeel. No observable tannin until the very, very end of the palate. Very fresh and delicate...all in all closer to the Latour than in most vintages. Dry finish.
...still impressively deep and comparatively youthful; a well developed, sweet and harmonious bouquet. Mouthfilling, so much on show, so much left to show. Another effortless 20 years?
