A triumph of balance and finesse, this 1991 is stylistically closer to Pauillac than Oakville! This bottle is very lightly corked but it's easy, for once, to disregard that. Very deep red in colour, it's showing only slight maturity. The nose is smoky and cedary, distinctly Bordelais in style, with refined blackberry fruit aromatics. The palate is rich and opulent, showing no extraction or excessive heft, while the texture is exquisite and the wine is still fresh. It has good length with some piquant acidity on the finish as well as sweetness of fruit. It's certainly ready to drink now, but there's no rush. (SB)
