91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2000
Ruby with purple highlights. Powerful aromas of spicy blackberry and vanilla. Concentrated and structured on the palate, with forceful flavors of ripe cassis and sweet oak carrying through to the finish. Tannins are substantial but round. Not as seductive or caressing as the 1997 or, in particular, the 1996, but entirely convincing. The top wine of the house by now, from new, densely planted, terraced vineyards, but the first year, 1996, was distinctly better than the following two, which seems rather odd.
