93-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2001

Full, saturated ruby, by a wide margin the darkest of these '97s. Spicy, high-pitched aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice, flint and tar.

More tannic than the Mouline or Turque but here, too, the tannins are quite fine. Very long on the palate. A lovely expression of syrah from a very ripe year.
