Winemaker's Notes

Moderately saturated medium red. Smoky redcurrant, cherry, coffee, minerals and tobacco on the aromatic nose. Juicy and dry, with suave, understated flavors of leather, coffee grounds and minerals. Grew more pliant with aeration. Spreads out nicely on the palate, finishing with firm but fine tannins and very good length.

Critical Acclaim

"Loads of red fruits on the nose, with blackberry and cherry character. Full-bodied, with superrefined tannins and a lovely plum, coffee and smoky finish. Very subtle and long. Very close to the 2000 in quality. This is a chateau on the rise. Best after 2007. "
