Expert Reviews

87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2001

Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, violet, bitter chocolate and licorice. Tightly wound, intensely flavored and on the lean side, with extremely primary flavors of cassis and dark chocolate. Not showing its flesh today, but this has good underlying density and pliancy. Finishes with toothdusting, fine tannins.

A solid wine, but I think I'll give it another few years.
Surprisingly approachable

I had expected to have to cellar this until 2007, but I noticed that a couple of places showed it as drinkable from 2005, so I thought I'd give it a go. Blimey, they weren't wrong. Very pleasant, although to me a little un-Pauillac like - early doors the merlot is too prominent. It will probably develop a more appropriate character given another few years in the bottle. I think I'll save 1/2 my case to find out.
