IWC 91

Sexy aromas of cassis, black raspberry, mocha, cocoa powder, game and minerals. Densely packed but juicy; a very stylish wine with a lovely light touch thanks to perfectly integrated acidity. Still quite penetrating and youthfully unevolved. Finishes very long and subtle, with terrific grip. A strong effort. 91+

Much sweeter and more beguiling than the 1999 for me. You... Definite mature hints at the rim. Quite mature nose – much more developed than the 1999 for example. Firm backbone but nicely developed - like 2002 – on the nose. Much sweeter and more beguiling than the 1999 for me. You could already enjoy it. Quite long. 17/20
