Tasting Notes

Compact cedar blackcurrant nose - rather muted. Ripe palate with just a hint of sur-maturite. The palate has good grip, chewy thick tannins lacquered with succulent black fruits. Great depth and length. Superb for the vintage. Tasted May 2001.

Score: 89 - 90

Full red-ruby. Cassis and licorice on the nose, plus a slight green note of currant leaf. Juicy and fairly intensely flavored but with the leafy nuance repeating. Chunky tannins are a bit tough for the wine's middle-palate material. Finishing note of licorice.

Score: 85 - 88
