Twenty-five years on tasting.
Good color, still plenty of ruby, amber to the rim. High-class perfume here, subtle shadings of périgord, sea-cave and blood-orange to inform his iron and metal profile. Forested raspberries with a rewarding rôti caramelization. Silex minerality brings it home, unalloyed and bright. Fine acidity and definitive tension for the vintage; you can still keep this. Now – 2019.
