From Magnum. Medium garnet. Expressive nose of red berries, sweet spices, with a hint of earth and wood in the background. Excellent complexity and pinocity. Elegant and aromatic on the palate with very fine structure. My last bottle of this, bought it when it was still on the rise and relatively chap. Alas... another great Burg that has become very expensive. PS: I recently bumped into an old friend to whom I recommended this wine and he bought a few Magnums to store as 2002 was his wedding year. Needless to say, given the price rise he is now fully convinced of my vinous skills. :-)
Pnp, fresh nose of red fruit jump out of the glass, followed by rose petal and a hint of rusty nose. Zappy acid blended with sweet fruit in mouth, tannin is soft but nice grip on follow through. More floral after taste of floral and spicy note. Lovelyvand drinking nicely now.

(Mommessin Clos du Tart) Medium-plus colour. The nose shouts deep, black-edged, creamy cherry and a little coffee - not so wide. The soft entry delivers you sweet, interesting red-shaded fruit The tannins are very well covered by the concentrated fruit - builds well from the mid-palate into a super, mouth-watering finish - it just melts away. Today it's certainly a hedonist's wine rather than an intellectual wine - but if, with time, it builds some complexity it will be a very fine bottle.
