(tasted sur colle) Bright medium ruby. Aromas of black fruits, violet, cedar and mint, with a light leafiness. Very suave in the mouth, with a sweetness and softness that belie its very high (82%) Cabernet content. This boasts impressive inner-mouth flavor and a distinctive mineral quality. No doubt even brighter than it's showing on its finings. Lovely Ducru in the making. (ST)
Aromas of tobacco, currant and cigar box follow through to a full body, with silky, refined tannins and a clean, focused finish. Caressing and very pretty. Coming together now. (Web Only—2008)
Mid dark ruby. Gravely/warm bricky nose. More supple on the palate than many and quite nicely balanced- albeit with the elevated acidity that characterises this vintage. Reminds me rather of Haut-Bailly though it has more grip.
It is good to see this wine showing much better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it had a certain leanness and herbaceousness. There is still a hint of dried herbs in the classy nose of red and black currants, cedar wood, and spice box. The wine has a deep ruby/purple-tinged color, excellent density, and medium body in an elegant style with a hint of road tar and sweet fruit. It should drink well young but age nicely for 12-15 years. (RP)
