Quite evolved rim. Very dense even if not very expressive. Think chunky; almost Italian in its bone-dryness. 17.5/20 points.
This is the most amazing wine this estate has ever produced. It is rich and long-lived. It boasts a dark purple color, as well as sweet, earthy, black currant and cherry liqueur-scented nose. There is terrific fruit intensity and purity, as well as moderate tannin in the medium-bodied, impressively rich finish... A sleeper of the vintage. (RP)
Deep ruby-red. Cassis, blueberry, smoke, shoe polish and tobacco leaf on the nose, plus a hint of confiture Sweeter and denser than the '97; quite Pauillac in style. Finishes with dusty, even tannins. Youthful and strong for this wine.
Aromas of raspberry and flowers follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a tight finish. (Web Only-2007)
