Vintage started 28 September (32 hl/ha). Deep colour, crimson, has lost blue notes. Glorious nose of black cherries; heather and all of the maquis on the nose - imposing. Taste: youthful, very good balance of fruit, tannin, acidity. Tannins less camouflaged than in '89 - more apparent - wonderful raspberries on the palate. Chewy. A keeper. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
