<li> a truly world-class wine <li> very limited availability<br><br> This year is the 25th anniversary of the Paris Tasting, in which Warren Winiarski's 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon outperformed such wines as Mouton-Rothschild 1970 and Haut-Brion 1970. I rec
Wonderfully fragrant, with rich velvety colour. Slightly chocolate fruit, backed by superbly silky tannins and great length. Just beginning to open up. Drink 2006-2016.
Finesse, subtlety and Margaux-like charm. A wine of sensuous, seamless brilliance.
