Massive nose despite it´s age. Showing a great balance of dark ripe fruits, and the elegance that time brings. Oak, leather, dried red berries. Taste is full bodied, balanced with lots of dark fruits, tar, tea, leather. A big, complex, long wine, that is simply gorgeous!
Really lovely. Tried in a flight with 1985. Much younger smelling and tasting than the 1985. Some chocolate as well as oak on the nose. Still rich pure dark fruit. More acid. Rounder mouth feel. Delicious.
Incredible density and the blueberry fruit is so fresh and vibrant. It has just a hint of earthy development and a little sage and mint. It is powerful and juvenile and provided the cork lasts this wine will last many decades.
