  • Very rich full bodied, loads of dark, primary fruit - but there are still lots of locale and garrigue and some hints of elegance here - could be become quite burgundian (!) of left for another 5 years. But very nice to drink now and one of the few top wines to come out of this vintage. (with AD at Racines, New York)

  • Needed some air - about 30 min. Sweet Grenache fruit (although on the decline for fruit)... just enough, yielding to wonderful secondaries and minerality. Not sure how long this will hold for, I'd recommend drinking 1-2 yrs.

  • Pop 'n pour- damn fine wine; raspberry, plum, smooth, herbs, licorice- all integrated smooth mature... Tasty.

  • Agree w "Beatles" 100%.
    Came out edgy and closed, opened up and was fine, but never developed the complexity, layers and wonder-fullness I look forward to in a well stored, 14 yo CPD from a good yr/reliable house.
    Very good, not transcendant.

  • Needs air. Badly. The attack is a bit harsh, softens up in the glass. Tasted vis-a-vis the 1999, this does (not surprisingly) come out on the stronger, richer side. Not burnt at all and none of the vintages some excessive alcohol, but still somewhat of a heavy hitter in comparison. Olives, garrigue and rich grenache-fruit dominates, and while this is a lovely and typical wine indeed, this lacks the creaminess and pure provencial joy of the Pegau as well as the lightness and elegance of it's 1999 sibling. Will keep, but I don't see it really going anywhere
