Tasted next to 1992 La Mouline and 1993 La Turque. A bit darker in colour than the other two. Lots of depth to the nose - meaty, spicy with notes of mushrooms, tobacco, black tea. On the palate slightly drying, really quite grippy. The most backward in comparison. Good fruit, acidity and a nice mineral streak leading to a long, quite intense finish. Drink or keep. 92-94
Distinctively better than the last bottle, but then it had less competition this time around. Meat, leather, tobacco, smoked dried beef, black pepper, butterscotch, toffee and black cummin. Great depth and complexion.
Good acidity, vibrant fruit, smooth, silky and elegnt. Slender body and a terrific length.
Nez très séduisant, enivrant, d'épices fines, de viande fumée, poivre et cerises noires. Le nez envoûtant d'un grand vin, mais la bouche est évidemment plus légère, voluptueuse, très bien conservée voire jeune. Elle souffre simplement d'un manque de concentration. 91 pts
