  • What the experts say...

    Plus structuré et plus riche que son aîné d'un an, le 1990 arbore une robe sombre et libère de séduisants arômes de tabac, de prune et de café, dans un ensemble très corsé et extrêmement mûr. C'est certainement la plus belle réussite de la propriété depuis le 1982. Source : Robert Parker (1/93)

    Cuvée presentation

    The wines are aged for 14 months in barrels, 40% of which are renewed each year. On tasting, the wine has a deep ruby colour, and takes a few years to express its full character, developing voluptuous notes of dark fruit (blackberries). Rich and velvety on the palate, it releases a complex, pleasantly spicy array of flavours.
