This has evolved somewhat more positively than I imagined and still has at least some potential remaining. The nose initially revealed considerable stem influence but after 45 minutes of airing, the spice and dark fruit elements began to assert themselves with the overall impression being one of elegance, purity and impressive complexity. The firm middle weight plus flavors are detailed, minerally, powerful and beautifully focused, all wrapped in a lingering finish of superb length. This is classy juice and while the '93 Riche can be drunk with pleasure now, for my taste it still could benefit from another 4 to 5 years of cellar time (though note that it will age for decades to come). That said, if the urge moves you, this is already a lovely wine. Tasted on multiple occasions.
