But what a stellar performance! Youthful in colour, the glycerine-rich nose is brilliantly defined and showing none of the alcohol and volatility that some ’90 clarets are beginning to show. Very intense bouquet: blackberry, cassis, warm gravels, violets and a hint of roasting chestnut. The palate is full-bodied, broad-shouldered with intense black fruits, sinewy, layers of cassis and black plum, a hint of damson leading to a vice-like grip on the fig and raisin-tinged finish. Voluptuous, but this is no harlot, this is far more intellectual and refined. Drink now-2030+

A stunner, with a glorious aromatic display of mulled plum, blackberry and cherry notes seamlessly melded with rooibos tea, singed balsa wood and ground vanilla bean accents. The structure is so fine-grained that it's almost hard to find, but the marathonesque length shows it's there. As gorgeous as it is, this remains a hair behind the modern greats in terms of concentration. Still, it should hold at this peak for some time. Awfully close to the '89, but sometimes we have to split hairs.—Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Drink now through 2025. 25,000 cases made. –JM
