Not known as the greatest of vintages but after 2 hours of air, this is showing nicely. Classic leather earthiness with cassis and red fruit. The finish is building with time.

Never give up on 'bad' vintages from great producers.

A shocker for a 94! Better than any Bordeaux 94 I can remember. Lush mouth feel of top Pomerol and sustained elegant richness throughout. Only slightly dried out after 2 hours and drank the bits of sediment.

Underrated - drinking well, good fruit albeit slightly green. Bit of tannin on finish. Benchmark luncheon claret
