Tasting Notes

90 points Robert Parker: "A big time sleeper of the vintage as well as a fabulous value, this dark ruby/purple-colored offering hit all cylinders in 2004, a credit to proprietor Jean Thiel. Supple tannins, a big, sweet, fleshy personality, and plenty of creme de cassis, cherry, earth, and background oak are found in this full-bodied, flamboyant wine. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years. Bravo!" (06/07) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Builds on the palate. I like this better than the 2003. Best after 2010." (03/07) According to Stephen Tanzer: "(59% merlot, 32% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc) Medium ruby. Enticing, ripe aromas of kirsch and nutty oak. Delicate, juicy and nicely delineated, with good intensity and cut. Not at all a fat style, but penetrating and pure. Finishes with firm tannins and very good persistence. A merlot-based Moulis wine with a nice light touch." K&L's tasting notes from barrel: "Always one of our favorites. Sweet and lovely--great acidity. Nice wine done in the traditionalist style. Fine wine that is close to 2003 quality." (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer)

    This "big-time sleeper of the vintage" (RP, not me) is beautifully put together. If, in the parlance of our times, you've been sleepin' on this estate, and for that matter on the classic (and fairly priced) 2004 vintage in Bordeaux, you ought to recognize. Furthermore, if you don't know, you better ask somebody. There is no half stepping to the shelves on this wine, walk briskly to one of our stores or the website and invest in this beautiful, 20+ year wine.

    This wine was one of my favorites because I was expecting it to still show some tannins, but they were polished and supple. Pure on the nose, the wine shows cedar, spice, raspberry and blackberry aromas. The black and red fruit dominate the palate with a supple mouthfeel and a long finish of cedar, spice and very aromatic black fruit.
