94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
($90) Quinine, peach, clove and liquid stone on the nose, complicated by a suggestion of exotic fruits. Rich, round, dense and suave; highly concentrated but extremely subtle. The deepest of these 2001s, with minerals and spices emerging on the very long finish, which shows some oak notes of vanilla and grilled nuts. Wetlaufer describes the 2001s-pinots as well as chardonnays-as drier, less open and higher in alcohol than the Marcassin 2002s, and they are indeed less showy today.
