No formal notes, over dinner. Another great showing of this wine. Quite dark in colour still with few signs of evolution around the rim. Wonderful nose with spices, graphite, tobacco, cassis, plums, smoke. Very expressive and pretty. On the palate fresh and grippy. Not as expressive as the nose suggests, rather elegant, poised and a bit firm but not lean. Great length. A young adult, no rush in drinking this. 92-94
Fully mature, medium/full bodied, with a complex array of licorice, truffle, flowers and black cherries in the nose, the wine is smooth, soft and easy to drink. There is no real rush to drink it, but at close to 15, there is no need to age it further either.
Recent notes are spot on for this wine so there is not much need to elaborate. This is showing seamless sexy plum, fig, and cherry fruit with licorice tobacco and hot stone coming in behind it. Complex but still hedonistic at thisstage. Could cellar further but feel free to pop one now as it is so nice.
Far beyond my expectations and general reviews. I had Pavie 2001 recently, this one's killing not only that, but most Libournais I ever tasted. Find one, and drink it - at its peak which is now, I'd say.
Stallig näsa med mycket cabkänsla, härlig frukt, balans tobak och vinbär. Smaken är makalöst bra med höstskog, tobak etc. en helt klockren Bordeaux i mitt tycke. kul med Bordeaux som inte behöver så lång tid för att börja leverera. Jag tror detta vin är på sin absoluta topp just nu.
