Critic Notes

Delivers wonderful sweet fruit on the nose, with plenty of flowers and currant. Full-bodied, featuring chewy tannins and lots of fruit. This is chewy and structured still. Very serious for the vintage, but offering some polish, too.¿'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2010

Score: 86-/100Robert Parker
