This is one of those beautiful, charming clarets that was delicious when released in 1983 and has remained so ever since. Although not the blockbuster style of the 1982, nor as concentrated as either that vintage or the 1983, it is an undeniably seductive, perfumed wine with a penetrating fragrance of black-raspberries, tea, and cedar. This smooth, velvety-textured, medium-bodied wine exhibits no signs of losing either its focus or its fruit. It is holding up far better than I would have anticipated. I still think it should be consumed unless it is in a magnum format. Last tasted, 7/93. Wine Advocate.August, 1993
