Wine Details

Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) Number 43 of Wine Spectator's 2003 Top 100 Wines! "Big wine, but so reined and sleek, it comes across as delicate on the palate. Plenty of finely tuned oak, with vanilla, chocolate and mocha aromas that blend into the sweet red and blackberry to produce a classy and satiny wine that is surprisingly aristocratic for this appellation. Like a charming red Burgundy from chambolle-musgny. Drink now through 2010." -P.M., The Wine Spectator, August 31, 2002
