    Great dribkability today string of minerals and dark fruits make this wine but beautifully balanced tannins. Make sure you let this one warm up a bit first so you can enjoy its classic bordeaux bouquet.

    開瓶黑果味主導,一小時后香氣開始散發,黑櫻桃,黑加侖子,紫羅蘭香氣迷人,單宁強勁但唔傑,酸度高但平衡,入口有濃郁的黑果味,黑櫻桃,紫羅蘭花香,加上少許咖啡香味,餘韻長香氣口腔中長留。酒色深紫,應可再存幾年更好。

    (2004 Vintage) Deep medium ruby. Precise aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and flowers. Sweet, broad, dense and focused, with terrific purity and depth of fruit. Finishes with noble, broad tannins and outstanding persistence. Like the 2003 version, this wine really saturates the entire palate with flavor.
