Firm, oakey nose, has noble rot, good fruit and a good acidity. Not as full as it appears at first but still backward and a bit austere. The 1981 seems fatter and plumper, but this has more finesse, certainly at present, and is more oakey. (Grands Vins: The Finest Châteaux of Bordeaux and their Wines, pg 570)
