Description

A monster of a wine, that is finally opening up to reveal its superb quality and charm. Full-bodied, powerful, and loaded with flavours of forest fruits, plums, cigar box, and vanillin. Robustly structured, with grainy, yet beautifully integrated tannins. The formidable concentration of the fruit and tannin will allow for at least another 15 years of graceful ageing. This can be considered as an exceptional vintage, in par with the 1982.
