  • Definitely had seen its peak a while ago. Nose very licorice. Palate lacks fruit, attack. Very narrow character, short length. Disappointing.

  • GRANDI MERLOT ITALIANI: Degustato alla cieca. Già il colore fa presagire una maturità e sottiliezza di beva superiori rispetto agli altri mostri scuri italiani. Tabacco e terra, poi tanto pepe. La componente vegetale è in primo piano, e scolpisce un profilo quasi "immaturo" e non perfettamente compiuto, segno di un annata media. Ma tutto questo non fa che aumentare l' eleganza, la leggerezza e la bevibilità dell' insieme.
    A centro bocca pare quasi annacquato, ma sul finale riacquista slancio e la persistenza è doppia rispetto agli altri vini con il doppio di corpo.
    Segno che per durare non serve essere grossi e muscolosi!
    Il finale affumicato merita la degna consacrazione di vino della serata.
    Chapeau

  • Dark ruby color. Nose of acute greenery on the pop, followed by more nuanced berry, herb, tree and wet forest. Initial palate of tight very green notes, green pepper, minerals, crushed rocks opens to some semblance of silky black cherry fruit. Such a baby with decades left to mature. Extremely powerful and well made. Decadent.

  • A bit of discolouration around the rim, less dark than the 1998 Canon-la-Gaffeliere tasted alongside. Rich, sweet, floral, layered and complex on the nose. Lots of red and dark fruit, spices, coffee, smoke. Sweet, succulent fruit on the palate, lots of concentration, but great acidity and grip, tannins a little drying and powerful. Quite firm still. Fantastic length. No rush at all drinking this. 94-95+

  • A bit of bret at first, clean fresh body, great balance and ripe fruit. There was a bit of band aid on the finish but it wasn't off-putting.
