A knockout! Slightly overwhelming for the grilled lamb I served it with, but what a charmer. Still ver youthful. Wish I had another case...

Very extracted. Big bold and heady. All liqueur fruits, liquorice and chocolate. Not for the faint hearted. Deep, full, concentrated with newer polished oak. Modern style, not sure on its longevity as the acid lacking

Solid Lirac. Lots of flavor and the age has softened the edges, tons of dark fruit and charcoal, but a little monolithic yet. Still has time to develop I think...

This is the 2001. Dusty, earthy , herbal aromatics. Still some heat. I don't love the balance. Hot to me. Tannins are still hanging on at the back.
