(From 1996 Vintage) Immensely rich with striking blackcurrant flavours, a firm tannic structure and a long, long finish.
Deep red tinged with violet. The nose is filled with mineral notes, mesquite, nutmeg and profound aromas of black fruits, forest blackberries, and licorice root. The attack is deep and well sculpted while the evolution reveals tremendous balance. Bitter chocolate and licorice root fill the mouth, and a return of cassis, cherries and peach pips dominate the final. The vintage 2002 is remarkably dense and unctuous.
