(From 2009 Vintage) Deliciously fruity, with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe, sweet, densely juicy.
(From 2004 Vintage) "Wonderful aromas of raspberry and currant. Full-bodied, with refined, silky tannins and a long aftertaste. Beautiful and tender. Best after 2009."Wine Spectator 90 pointsMouton continues to improve on this neighboring property just to the south, where it's created a delicious 2004. The texture is succulent and velvet-soft, the flavors black, shot through with a brighter red-berry aroma. It's juicy and ready to drink with steak frites; this should grow more complex over the next several years....
