A great sleeper of the vintage, this fully mature wine, made by Helene Garcin, has loads of deep raspberry and black cherry fruit with hints of licorice, toasty oak, and spice box. It is plush, succulent, and hedonistic, yet at the same time complex. I loved their 1998, and this wine seems to have turned out just as well. It has reached full maturity, where it should stay for at least a 10 to 15-year period. (RP)
Good medium ruby-red. Explosive nose combines cherry liqueur, woodsmoke, flowers and smoke. Sweet, fat and pliant but juicy and perfumed. Has the inner-mouth aromatic complexity and complete flavor development one would expect from a cool site that benefitted from a very warm growing season and harvest. Very sexy wine, finishing with big, palate-dusting tannins and excellent length. (ST)
Lots of crushed berry, flower and vanilla aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a balanced finish. Best after 2006. (JS)
