(From «nv» Vintage) Garnet Colour. The nose is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, licorice, mineral and coffee scents.Long, complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit.
(From 2003 Vintage) That combines expressive aromatics, the ripeness of the vintage and classic structure, it is an awesome effort. Though it offers plenty of super-ripe fruit and notable concentration, it never comes across as being heavy and displays exceptional overall balance.
