92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2004

($70) Bright ruby-red. Superripe, expressive aromas of dark berries, black olive tapenade, gunflint and dark chocolate. Fleshy and sweet, with flavors of blackberry, dried herbs, black olive, pepper and smoke. Very much a wine from granitic soil; conveys a strong impression of noble rusticity. Finishes very long, with big, chewy tannins and late notes of dried herbs, olive and black pepper. Has the material to reward a decade or more of cellaring, but this is also less austere in its youth than most recent vintages of Clape Cornas. I underrated this wine a year ago, although at the time I tasted it in its several components. (Kermit Lynch, Berkeley, CA; Europvin/Christopher Cannan Selections, Bordeaux, France)
