90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2004
($40; 14% alcohol) Deep, bright yellow. Liqueur-like aromas of mirabelle, smoke and earth. Fat and concentrated but taut, with bracing citrussy acidity giving shape to the peach and yellow plum flavors. Juicy finishing flavors really cling to the palate. Cordier stirred the lees every two weeks to get the fat this wine needed to buffer its strong acids. With its pH of 3. 15 and powerful structure, this should prove to be a long-lived Saint-Veran.
