(06-2009) Tasted blind and decanted. Dark color, evolved, clean nose, precise, pure, very fruity. Mouth sweet, fruity, tasty, medium body, but particularly well balanced. Very tasty, the wine finishes on a normal length, but especially with a real impossibility to spit it so much it is well adjusted to the mouth. A great success of the property.
(04-2002) This dense rubypurple-colored 1999 is a modern day clone of this estate's wonderful 1962. The 1999 reveals forward, open-knit notes of creme de cassis and earth. It is fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and succulent, with supple tannin, excellent balance, as well as a long, pure, ripe finish.
(06-2009) Blind tasted and decanted. Dark, evolved color. Clean, precise, pure, very fruity nose. Soft, fruity, tasty palate, medium body, but particularly well balanced. Very tasty, the wine ends with a normal length, but above all with a real impossibility to spit it out as it is so well adjusted to the mouth. A great success of the property.
(05-2001) One is rarely disappointed; indeed I usually have a tingle of anticipation. Typically spicy fruit.
