An exuberantly spicy and notably ripe, indeed even with discreet notes of torrefaction and roasted espresso beans that also reflect intense floral aromas precede big, robust, forceful austere black fruit flavors that are supported by ripe tannins though perhaps not quite as much density and length as usual. This is really quite regal but in 2000, it's more of a middle weight than its normal massive, well muscled and structured character yet this will still need another 5 to 8 years to arrive at its apogee. Tasted multiple times with largely consistent notes.
Good full red. Tight nose hints at cassis, violet, meat and truffle. Firmly built, suave and penetrating; not especially pliant or sweet but harmonious acidity gives it good shape. Finishes with firm tannic spine and a suggestion of slightly funky wood. (ST) 91+
