Expert Reviews

87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2002

Medium ruby-red. Rather oaky aromas of currant and graphite. Juicy, minerally and on the dry side, with notes of raw currant and woodsmoke. Seems a bit oaky, but finishes with good grip and acidity.

Not worth $80

I laid down a bottle of this when it was only $50, and we had it for a special occasion recently. It was a good classic Bordeaux, but I've had many from the 2000 vintage that cost less than $40. These are still available. 2000 was such a good vintage in Bordeaux that many wines at half the current price of this one will please you more.
