($195-$255) Medium red with an amber edge. Highly nuanced nose combines red- and blackcurrant, mocha, dried herbs, olive, truffle and underbrush. Very dense and sweet, but with terrific penetration and verve thanks to firm, harmonious acidity. Finishes with broad, ripe tannins and superb length. This bottle came across as young and still evolving. Drink now through 2020. (The bottle in the group of '82s was considerably more herbal, with a strong tobacco leaf character, rating a score of 89.)

In magnum. Still deep crimson. Slightly burnt edge. More concentrated than the 1983 on the nose and maybe more complete. The finish was a bit metallic and it did not have the richness or generosity of some 1982s. Quite stern. Was this a good magnum? Thierry Manoncourt pointed out that in a Grand Jury Européenne blind tasting this wine was placed seventh overall and was rated too by an American jury.

Let breathe for 2 hours. Nose of cedar, smoke, leather, dried herbs, dark fruit and spice. In the mouth, it has extraordinary complexity, elegance and balance. Rich fruit and leather combined perfectly. We love this wine. show no sign of age

When i first opened wine i thought it could be bad. Left in the glasses for an over one hour and it was very good. Drink all that you have - this wine is ready.
