From the Comte von Neipperg, his wines from this over-achieving estate always deliver an aromatic fireworks display of cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, roasted herbs, black olive, cassis and sweet kirsch. The 2005 has all that as well as ripe, well-integrated, velvety tannin, and full body in a sexy, luscious, heady style to drink now and over the next 10-15 years. (RP)
This is exotic, with mushroom, blackberry and meat aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of decadent fruit character. Long and beautiful. The best from this estate since 1990. (JS)
Good deep red. Truffley aromas of raspberry, mocha and earth. Rich, roasted red fruit and woodsmoke flavors sexed up by sweet caramel. Fleshy, round and sweet but with serious stuffing too. I find this very easy to taste today, but Stephan von Neipperg notes that it has the tannic structure of the '98 made here. (ST)
Tasted blind. Looks fully mature with a deep ruby core. Interesting fully evolved bouquet. Top note of molasses. Really rather luscious, with masses of interesting savoury fruit and an undertow of dissolving tannins. Tastes like a terroir-informed rather than overly ‘made’ wine. Freshness on the finish.
