(From 2000 Vintage) The wine displays an opaque purple color, but begins to show slightly evolved tinge. The nose, which surprises with its concentration and purity, is distinguished by aromas of ripe fruit, liquorice and toast. Fairly tannic, the palate nevertheless is highly smooth with cherry and liquorice notes, and unrivalled length. An exceptional vintage.
