For L'Arrosee, this vintage has taken an atypically long time to round into shape. It has always possessed considerable power as well as a muscular, concentrated style and hefty tannin. Beginning to shed its tannin, it reveals an intriguing dusty herb, black cherry, kirsch, and mineral-scented nose, with subtle vanillin from new oak in the background. There are medium-bodied, concentrated flavors with some firm tannin, but by and large this is a very accessible wine. It remains youthful, with only a hint of amber at the edge of its deep ruby/purple color. This will undoubtedly be one of L'Arrosee's longest lived wines since their 1961. Anticipated maturity: now-2012. Last tasted 12/97.Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1



Supple and spicy, with concentrated cherry and plum fruit, firm tannins, to asty and earthy on the finish, fairly long and attractive. Try 1991. – Wine Spectator 1989
