(Magnum) A better vintage, although intermittent rains delayed harvest. Fresher than the ’84 and showing a little heat from a higher alcohol. Rich, fleshy wine – quite attractive but not showing as much complexity. Probably close to peak. Drink now.

90 Points Robert Parker

Considered a more "restrained" Grange, this wine has balance but a somewhat foursquare/monolithic character with dry, astringent tannin in the finish, hence the question mark. The color is still a healthy dense purple, and the wine shows the tell-tale peppery, asphalt, earthy, creme de cassis characteristics, but the tannin seems to be increasingly problematic. As always, it is still a young wine, so the question that begs to be answered with time is, "Is it just unevolved and backward, or is it too tannic?"
