Tasting Notes and Scores

Jancis Robinson
18

Bright crimson. Lots of acid and pretty light bodied. Very, very lightweight and a little weedy but there is some richness in what is left of the fruit core. This was clearly a very successful vintage and must have been a good drink at its peak. Could be great if tasted in isolation but it rather suffered in contrast to the Mouton 1949 served alongside.
