Score is for today and may increase with time. Tasted next to the 95 Unico, this was more open, rounder, fuller, and more balanced, but also slightly less interesting. Will be incredibly interesting to follow the evolution of these over the next 20 years or so. I think this will be better in the next decade and the individual vintages (91, 94, 95) better after that. Looks to me that in blending the vintages, they go for more harmony but maybe less ultimate greatness. Will have to see.
30e anniversaire de Vincent: Un nez où on perçoit de l'élevage. Fumé, avec des notes de cuir, d'orange sanguine, de vanille. S'il semble moderne au nez, il parait beaucoup plus traditionnel en bouche, avec une magnifique texture. Un vin racé et assez fin, d'une belle complexité, sans toutefois la fraicheur et le charme du Poyeux. Très beau vin. 93 pts
Deep black. Lots of melted, caramelized butter in the nose; also lemon buttermilk, dough, caramel, popcorn, tar, gravy, capers and something like anchovy. Incredibly intense on the palate; leaves great warmth in the mouth that makes you feel your blood pulsating.
