*Outstanding* There is no other way to say it: this is a monster of a wine in the context of 2004 and there is no point in even thinking about opening one of these babies for at least a dozen years. Much like the Fremiers, this is aromatically pure but cool, tight and very backward, leading to exceptionally rich yet detailed full-bodied flavors that explode on the hugely long finish. This is one of those 'wow' wines and it wouldn't surprise me if it eventually merited a higher score as it is blessed with superb material, impeccable balance and striking length. In short, if you're going to buy it, put it in the cellar and forget it.
Good ruby-red. Reduced, inky nose hints at licorice. Then impressively rich and concentrated, with real power to the currant, iron and tobacco flavors; one senses the red clay soil here. This has the sheer stuffing (the wine is carrying 14.5% alcohol) to handle its serious, powerful tannins, which arrive late. There's a peppery nuance on the finish. Confuron says this will be at its best in 15 years-"or drink it with truffles in 20 years." (ST)
