Good medium ruby. Spicy aromas of blackberry and minerals. Juicy and penetrating, with lively flavors of black fruits, licorice and game. Less dense and silky than the '99 or '00, and perhaps more classic in its precision. Finishes with firm tannins, and subtle, lingering finishing flavors.
Deeper and darker than Calon 1998 and with a less mature rim. Leafy nose and some obvious sweetness that makes it easy to see why this property has done particularly well in high-profile blind tastings. Very satisfying already. Neat, long finish. 17.5/20 points. (JR)
A deep ruby/purple color combines with a sweet nose of minerals, blackberries, and cassis in this nicely-textured, medium-bodied 1998. It possesses excellent concentration, firm tannin, and admirable purity as well as balance. Like many wines from this estate, it requires patience, but will ultimately behave like a blue chip classified growth. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. (RP)
