Nose very scented, heady and concentrated. On the palate a glorious creamy rich texture combined with great elegance and length. It is reminiscent of the 1986 and 88. Ready 2003 onwards.
Has almost unbridled power today, while maintaining serious cut. A very impressive showing in a rather overlooked vintage.
...nose of roasted hazelnuts intermixed with creme brulee, vanilla beans, honey, orange marmalade, and peaches, this medium to full-bodied offering reveals loads of power in its restrained, measured personality.
Great balance. Mid copper. Very firm barley-sugar nose. Very rich and so concentrated. Lovely firmness. Brilliant fruit without being that sweet...Very flexible with food...
