What a gorgeous wine! Obviously more mature in appearance. A lighter brick core with tawny rim. A lovely autumnal nose with a touch of liquorish and cigar-box. Quite austere, perhaps a little dryness yet utterly charming. The palate exhibits fine concentration with refreshing acidity. Quite floral, almost Burgundian in evolution. Very graceful - this would appeal more to the traditional lovers of claret. Slight leathery on the finish but a charming sweet finish. Out of all the wines in this tasting this was the one I could quaff all night. In the end I had to down the glass in one to fill it with the 1990. Superb. Tasted January 2004.
