Deep clear red color. This wine had a beautiful nose of rose, strawberry, cherry, eat and game. Touches of cumquat were present in an evolving and aromatic nose. The palate was medium weight with great softness and delicacy leading into a very fine and long finish. A beautifully shaped wine that really danced with the delicacy and aromatic complexity making up for any loss of intensity in 2000.
Simply fantastic showing from this consistently superb wine. Probably the best bottle so far from my case. We caught this at the perfect moment. Lovely, precise, red fruit bursting from the glass. This was a real head turner.
Mainly PYCM & Fourrier (Spring, London): Similar mid to full garnet, a little lighter than the Fourrier 99. Far more fragrant and lifted, sweet fruit, spice, joie de vivre. Very Rousseau. Joyous but with enough seriousness to keep its line and shape. Holds well in glass through the evening. Lovely. Really lovely. ****1/2
Tonite is THE NITE (Restaurante Cuenllas - Madrid): I fell in love at the first sight. Beautiful palette of crimson colours. Aromatically is king. Complex aromas, among many others earth, rosé petals, cherries, species, tomatoes,...all with harmony and depth. PN at its best. Really impressive. People talked about same echoes on the palate. At its peak. Easy WOTN.
Caí enamorado a primera vista. Hermosa paleta de colores carmesí. Aromáticamente es el rey. Aromas complejos, entre muchos otros de la tierra, pétalos de rosa, las cerezas , las especies, los tomates... todo ello con armonía y profundidad. PN en su mejor momento. Realmente impresionante. La gente hablaba de esos mismos ecos en el paladar. En su cúspide. Fácil Ganador de la noche.
