A limited production St.-Emilion, this estate has developed a considerable following for its user-friendly, lavishly fruited and oaked wines. From bottle, the 2000 Ferrand Lartigue has weight, expansiveness, structure as well as tannin, suggesting 1-2 years of cellaring is warranted. Cassis, licorice, tobacco smoke, and sweet fruit provide an expressive, medium to full-bodied personality. Long, pure, and impressively built, it will be drinkable between 2005-2015. This is accessible enough to drink young, but it has more structure than previous vintages. (RP)
A crisp and refined red. Beautiful aromas of crushed berries, earth, spice and toasted oak follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with medium, well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. A lot of bright acidity. Best after 2006. (JS)
