Still dense and compact. Lovely gnarly fruit. Still tightly packed. I suspect in a few years this will show better, but great quality now.

Magnum - Still quite youthful, showing a beautifully high toned red berry intensity, classically balanced style from this producer, it still needs time out of magnum, but there is such an amazing noblesse in the reds.

Is Chave ever anything less than inspiring? 1998 in Magnum. Wish I had 10 more as this one was barely mid-life.

From Magnum. Dense and powerful. Ripe red and black fruit. In a good place, but certainly no hurry to drink.

Wow, very light in color like a burg but still a lot of tension and tannins. After an hour in the decanter still tough as nails. Lots of mineral. Smokin! But so young.
