Items Available: 2

Bottle Size: 75cl

Region: France: Bordeaux Left Bank

Colour: Red

Style: Still

Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red

Critic Score: Bright medium red with a reddish-amber rim. Pungent notes of cinnamon, quinine and rosemary complicate red cherry on the enticing, aromatic nose. Juicy and fresh on the palate, showing good density to the red fruit, peppery plum and herb flavors. Offers very good texture and chewy but noble tannins, with precise mineral-tinged fruit flavors lingering nicely on the peppery, flinty finish. A real step up in concentration from the 1989, and unlike that vintage this will still improve with further bottle age, though it's drinking well now. Very well done. Tasted April 2013. 92 points.
