(12-1990) Dark red. Dense. Black reflections. Slight change. Brilliant. Beautiful. Net. Very intense, rich and complex. Fruity, woody and spicy. Fairly fresh. Net. Intense. Shades of yellow and always fruity with a note of fresh cream, wood and licorice. Good. Attack is sharp, ample and suave. Development on a powerful, round, concentrated structure which evolves very balanced on a tasty very complex tastes, fruity and very spicy, towards a fat, slightly melted and very long finish. A lot of allure. Great wine a little austere but racy whose tannin is infinite.

(9-2005) This was very impressive – although note the suggested drinking bracket. This is a very long haul wine, but definitely one of the more successful candidates from this extremely tannic vintage. The wine looks fully mature and has a thoroughly exciting complex nose with just the right amount of lift. Lots of richness on the nose and great extract but very dry, dense chewy tannins – still! But the fruit density suggests this will make a great drink – eventually.
