Different from most other wines in this tasting, this vintage should be drunk immediately. At the first taste the wine is full of elegance and discretion, with notes of old wood, boletus mushrooms, spice and dried flowers all on a seductive palate. Based on this, it deserves its 96 points, but after keeping it for one day it died abruptly. At this age, each bottle has its own behaviour, but the next time I'm lucky enough to try this wine I'll ensure I drink it up quickly.

Reconditioned at the chateau

Quite deep colour showing some maturity. A richer and more concentrated version of the 1980, initially quite tannic but acidity fine and soft.
Full, ripe and complex - this wine has a lot of depth with a long warm finish.

It is recommended to decant this vintage and to allow it to breathe for at least a couple of hours before pouring.
