Deep red-ruby. Fabulous nose of toffee, coffee, smoke, cinnamon, minerals and a faint animal quality. Extraordinarily thick entry; great density and sweetness but with plenty of underlying acidity and backbone. As with the voluptuous ‘89, there's lovely delineation of flavor beneath all the glycerine. Finishes with a wave of melting tannins. Kept revealing additional nuances as it opened in the glass. Along with the '90 L'Angelus, a great example of what can be done with controlled yields, 100% new oak, and - minimal filtration. This wine is now putting most of Bordeaux's bigger names to shame.

Dark ruby. Savoury, even slightly herbaceous nose. Very sweet luscious palate - quite burgundian and full-blown. Seductive but the tannins have completely melted. Just a slightly dusty textural note. 17.5/20 points (JR)
