Score: 18.5pts

Although not regarded as a top year, this Churchill is a great succcess. The apple-compote nose is reserved but it has purity of fruit and finesse. The attack is lean, tight, and racy, very youthful and tight, with a wonderful tension and dynamism. It is in its prime but should keep well thanks to its racy acidity, which gives excellent length.
