Generous on the nose, it does not quite offer the fruit intensity of the 1990, but there are lovely warm gravel and licorice aromas, all beautifully detailed. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, sensual in style with Provençal herbs and fennel tincturing the mixture of smudged red and black fruit. From all accounts, it appears to have been a wine that shot out of the blocks with style, then ran out of steam for many years. Yet here, it is as if the 1989 has rediscovered that youthful promise, perchance at a point in time when many bottles have been popped and poured. Tasted June 2015.

Looks much more mature than the 1990 just tasted. Mid ruby with rusty rim. Intense, sweet with sweet licorice. Sweeter, smoother and more tarry than the 1990. Long and rich with layered undertow. Drinking range: 1998 - 2018 Rating: 18.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jun 2015)
