I have commented that several recent bottles of the wine have displayed clear notes of premature oxidation but this bottle was absolutely pristine with maturing but still pretty and superbly complex aromas and rich, full, intense and very Bâtard-like flavors that deliver excellent concentration in the context of the vintage and super length. While this may improve slightly from here, good bottles should remain at this level for years to come. In short, wonderful juice that is drinking perfectly now.
