Vintage information 1993:

A polarised vintage - both the wines and the opinions. 70% were a little dilute and had too much acidity - the rest, which are by no means ready yet are sometimes amongst the best of the last 20 years. From a good producer even the bourgogne blancs and rouges are still excellent.

There’s a dense core of fruit that’s a more roast expression than for 98. Sweeter and more intense palate, even the mid-palate has more intensity – though less fireworks. Better length, and that green note is there again – it’s more easily identifiable this time as fresh mint. Interesting, vs the 1998 this has more of everything – except charm! No worry about waiting another 5 or so years to see if it mellows, but drinking today I prefer the 1998.
