Other Reviews…..
Depending on production there’s around 200-300 dozen produced each year from 12 rows of vines planted around 1868. I tasted ten vintages (from freshly opened bottles) in less than an hour using ISO glasses, in brackets of twos and threes, and then went back and tasted through them all again singly, which starkly illustrated what a moving target complex wine can be. These, then, are my impressions from yesterday’s tasting: a snapshot taken as well as I could manage. Given time, bigger glasses, food etc. things might be different, although I’m pretty sure I captured the essential nature of each of the wines. Notes are pretty much as typed up on the day. Hard to believe that 1992 is seventeen years ago!
Delightful mature wine scents of cedar and tobacco box, licorice and a touch of mushroom earthiness. Just above middle weight and holding good sweet red and black fruit, and while the tannins are very slightly too assertive, I’d say it has years left to go. Terrific. A real charmer.

Centenary. Strong purple-red; spotlessly clean bouquet redolent of plum, cherry and berry fruit, and just a hint of French oak. The palate is powerful and concentrated, but very much the iron fist in a velvet glove style. Spotlessly clean, and the dark cherry fruit has all but swallowed up the new French oak. Will mature magnificently. Drink by 2044.
