The evolution of the wine has confirmed the early expectations for this fabulous vintage. Richness, complexity and opulence could be the key words to describe this exceptional wine, rather close in style to the 1982; its evolution will be fascinating to follow.
This is still just a baby, offering currant and berries, with dried flowers that turn to subtle cedar and dried fruits. Structured and full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and supersilky texture. This is so tight and powerful, but still backward. The palate builds and builds, with amazing tannins. A little chewy, this needs years still. You can drink it of course, but a waste now.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009).
