($40; an old-vines cuvee for the U.S. importer; no new oak used) Medium yellow. Musky, complex aromas of orange peel, nutmeg and smoke. Juicy and tightly wound, with excellent backbone and bright acidity. Penetrating, steely flavors of citrus skin, stone and minerals. Finishes firm, long and aromatic. Very young and built to reward aging. Cordier told me that with less sun in 2001 there was much less ripeness, yet this wine boasts alcohol close to 14%.
