This magnificent wine, which is just beginning to come into full maturity, boasts an inky/purple color as well as copious notes of blackberries, licorice, violets, and a striking chalky minerality. Full-bodied, voluptuously textured and stunningly pure, this great Bordeaux is one of the vintage’s superstars. The finish lasts 40-45 seconds in this majestic, multidimensional St. Emilion. It should continue to drink well for 10-15 years, but why wait? (RP)
Shows a singed edge to the core of blackberry and black currant fruit, with alder, cedar and tobacco accents weaving through the finish. This has moved into secondary notes, and while this shows length and range, the energy is slightly muted.—Blind '01/'03/'05 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2017). Drink now through 2025.

Dark red. Explosive aromas of currant and plum jam, game and leather. Downright velvety in the mouth, with compelling sweetness of fruit and pliancy of texture. The ripe plummy flavor is joined by chocolate and leather on the fairly tannic finish. Approachable already, this should gain in complexity with another few years of bottle aging. (ST)
