Eager to get the very best out of his outstanding soils, which are exceptionally homogeneous and recognised as having some of the highest potential in the Margaux appellation, Eric Albada Jelgersma now sees his team rewarded for their efforts.

Mitjavile's 1988 is extraordinary, and, once again, superconcentrated, with a dazzling level of extract, and a powerful, full-bodied, concentrated finish. It is less flashy and unctuous than the 1989, and those who like their Bordeaux a bit more linear and obviously tannic may prefer the 1988. It is a spectacular, riveting wine from one of the most driven winemakers in the world. I know the wine has now become hard to find, but producers like this deserve consumers' support, even allegiance.
