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.
Excellent nose! Very intriguing and fine, with a fine mix of pencil lead, fine herbs, stable, leather, licorice, anise, touch of earth and gravel and lovely blue fruit. Palate with wet hay, stable, leather, fine and silky blue fruit, fine acidity and overall excellent balance. Drinking at peak now, and indeed a lovely claret. 94+
On the nose, a typical brilliant "left bank bordeaux" black currant, stable, leather, cedar, smoke and sadle. On the palate, stable, leather, tobacco with nice fine tuned silky tannins. The total impression is that the wine merry the mouth. Long finish
I was sure this was a left bank bdx wine. But I was wrong, really wrong.
