Tasting Notes

89
Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

lovely aromas of sweet, ripe berries with hints of chocolate. Full bodied, with silky caressing tannins and a long fruity aftertaste. Very impressive for a second wine. Best after 2004.

James Suckling, Wine Spectator (31/3/2), March 2002

A beauty. Aromas of tobacco, cherry and chocolate. Medium body. Medium fine tannins. Very long, and for a second wine very, very good
