“Dark red. Dense. Black highlights. Slight evolution. Brilliant color. Beautiful. Clean. Very intense, rich and complex. Fruity, woody, and spicy. Quite cool notes. Intense. Shades of tawny yet always fruity with notes of crème fraîche, wood, and liquorice. Good. Clean attack: ample and suave. Has developed a powerful structure of a round, concentrated form which evolves to show its notable balance; tasty, tasty, very complex, fruity, and very spicy, progressing toward a fat finale, with slightly melted tannins, and very long-finishing. Very stylish. Great wine, a bit austere, but racy with indefinitely mouth-puckering tannins.” Jean-Marc Quarin, Quarin.com, Dec 1990
