Ruby-red. Cool aromas of black cherry, tobacco, currant leaf, minerals and toasty oak. Intensely flavored and sinewy, with less fat than the '99 but plenty of personality. Finishes with firm, nicely buffered tannins and very good persistence. A rather elegant, Pauillac-styled Clos du Marquis. (ST)
Currant and fresh herb aromas follow through to a medium body, with soft tannins and a polished, textured finish with hints of vanilla and berries.-'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. (Web-2009)
