- Tasting Notes
The unusually open nose expresses itself with notes of oak, earth and quite deeply pitched scents of plum, cassis, wild berries, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage. There is plenty of muscle to the supple, round and admirably pure large-bodied flavors that possess very firm but relatively fine-grained tannins on the impressively persistent and powerful finish. This is a notably ripe wine in the context of the vintage and one that should also amply reward mid to longer-term cellaring.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 94
Pure, focused and sappy, this red features cherry, raspberry, licorice and spice flavors, allied to a vibrant structure. Elegant, harmonious and long, with a mineral hint on the long finish. This is all about finesse.
– Bruce Sanderson, Winespectator.com, Score: 93
Full, dark red. Redcurrant, iron and a hint of game on the slightly wild nose. More masculine and structured than the Charmes and considerably tighter today, with pepper and spice notes from some whole-cluster fermentation accenting the wine’s dark berry flavors. Very tactile, minerally wine with a savory finish and little in the way of easy sweetness. This needs a good six or seven years of patience.
