Winemaker Notes: Bordeaux had not seen such an early vintage since 1893. By the end of August, the grapes were already ripened and wonderfully sweet. We know that one can not call a vintage really great when it has been harvested too early, but this one was appreciated because it appeared to be of a good vintage. Médoc produced colourful wines, which possess excellent richness without being too heavy. Seductive, fleshy and can be compared to the 1982 wines.
Critical Acclaim: 93 points 3Wine Spectator "Subtle, yet rich and decadent, offering meat, sweet berry and fresh leather on the nose. Full and very soft, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. This has so much ripe fruit. Reserved and firm, this is turning to a very fine and shy Lafite. This is fresh and structured, but still holding back."
