(2001 Vintage) "Medium-deep red. Sullen nose hints at cocoa, leather and smoke, plus a whiff of lily. Then floral and lively in the mouth; suave and dense but backward, with a suggestion of menthol. Seems less full than the Charmes, but this has more power and finesse. Finishes with fine, dusty tannins and good subtle persistence. Showed musky, truffley notes in the empty glass. Should age slowly...89-93" IWC 04/03
