Clear. Clean. Very intense nose, lots of berries, developing. Cherries, plums. Cool and fresh fruit notes. Very fresh and firm on the palate, elegant yet powerfull. Tannins are very fine. Very good length on the finish.
A very good wine. The structure is very fine and balanced, excellent.
See my note for the 88 and take it down a couple of points because the nose is just not quite as good. Still a very good wine and a great thing to have these two wines side by side. Thanks to my friends Les and new CT member Wspohn.
The nose was a lot better when first poured according to all at the table. I was a bit behind them. Also it had a nice herb thing.
Something strange going on - original note never appeared.
Nose doesn't show it's age, some dried herb, a little currant and a hit if alcohol. Palate is quite robust, again no sign of age. Alcohol and tannins come through at the finish but despite all this, a lovely wine unfortunately shadowed by the Haut Brion
