This is a strikingly delineated St.-Emilion with an opaque ruby/purple color, and aromas of black currants, blackberries, and wet steel/liquified minerals. The layered, rich, intense 1999 possesses superb fruit purity and medium to full body. This is one of the most concentrated and potentially longest-lived wines of the vintage. (RP)
Very fresh pure fruit nose. Gorgeous fruit quality and fine fruit. Pretty, well balanced, elegant wine which has well-matched, good fruit. Good polish, origin and class.
Deep red-ruby. Currant, mocha, game, coffee and smoky oak on the nose. Silky-smooth and sweet on entry, then less expressive in the mouth, and not currently showing much complexity. Today the tannins have the upper hand, but the wine's concentration and structure suggest it will harmonize with five to seven years of bottle aging. (ST)
Offer loads of new wood, but ripe fruit comes through as well. Full-bodied, with mouthpuckering tannins. A bit too much new wood, but impressive and opulent. (web only, 2010) (JS)
