Very youthful. Delicately light colour, not a trace of ox. One hour in the fridge took the edge off, but after another hour it returned to cellar temperature, and really started to perform. A vigorous wine, lovely citrus perfume, and smoke on the palate. Length. Still too young, but very good indeed.
P & P, half bottle. To follow a sublime LLC 1985 (very unfair). Shows its relative youth. Reticent nose. Still slightly sharp, not yet fully integrated. But a lovely wine in the making, smooth and long. Another 5 years required.
Opened 2 hours, but not decanted. Some oxidisation; not yet ruined, although definitely impaired. Still quite enjoyable, and we finished the bottle. But disappointing in the context of the vintage and the vineyard.
