Finishing with a slightly tart sappiness and lovely cherry/plum overtones, I would rate this wine at 93 points. Outstanding and worth every penny of the hundred dollars I forked out to secure the bottle. Bravo! Drink now to 2013+. 13% A/V

He considers that the results of this essai more closely resemble a lesser than a great year, so the experiment has not been repeated... Jacques d'Angerville is not in favour of saigner- although he did saigner a little in 1984 and again in 1990.
