Wine.comAn exceptional vintage with the earliest harvesting period of the century. The mellow tannin is further softened by the richness in alcohol and feeble acidity. The fruit is brilliant, intense and delicate. Very deep colour. Bouquet with complex aromas of charred wood, spices, coffee and ripe fruits. Admirable in the mouth because of the melting tannin and velvety texture. A fleshy, compact structure which unveils itself fully. Superb persistence. 2000-2009
International Wine CellarRating: 93/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 103, July/August 2002 ($100-$129) Full medium ruby. High-pitched, perfumed aromas of dark berries, minerals and violet; very cabernet. Rich, dense and youthful; broad and beefy, with cassis, black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes very sweet and long, with fine tannins spreading out impressively to coat the palate. A great showing.
