Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) This is a very expansive, expressive nose that fans out with aeration. Quite minerally and stony, this has a certain “coolness” about it, despite its fragrance. Then other notes emerge: cedar, sous-bois, blackberry and hedgerow. Masculine in style. The palate is still tight and tannic with a slight coarseness

    (2000 Vintage) 2eme Cru Classe. Long on sweet oak enrichment and fairly forthright in plump, optimally ripened fruit, this full and fleshy wine is among the more accessible of the bunch. An absolutely delicious wine whose broad, nicely layered flavors suggest black cherries, currants, cocoa, cream and vanilla, it is far from soft in balance, but it so very open and inviting now that many of our panel wondered aloud that it might well hail from Napa Valley.

    (1995 Vintage) "Very ripe, with an almost raisiny edge. Light vanilla flavor. Full-bodied, with lots of ripe fruit and a long, caressing, silky finish. Gorgeous wine. A couple more years will make it just right.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. 8,300 cases made."
