Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2004

($32-$39) Dark red. Subdued, lightly herbal aromas of currant, blueberry, tobacco leaf, chocolate, menthol and shoe polish. Perfumed and penetrating, with a restrained sweetness and a slight herbal edge. Finishes youthfully dry, juicy and persistent. This very elegantly styled wine grew suppler with aeration, showing a flavor of bitter cherry and finish. Very Pauillac.

Agree 100%. Bit disappointing overall. Expected a fraction more excitement. Pretty thin finish.

Unmistakeable Carruades nose of cassis, cream, and cedar. On the palate the wine is somewhat lightweight and has substantial acidity. Hopefully this will be absorbed in time, but I can't see this wine approaching the elegance of the '98.
