The finish lasts for minutes. The quality of the tannins is beautiful and the complexity of fruit earth and spices is impressive. Drinking this is like listening to Mozart.-'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 3500 cases made. -JS

It is a medium-bodied rather elegant style of Petrus with a distinctive cedary almost celery component intermixed with a hint of caramel and sweet mulberry and black cherry fruit. It has aged far less evenly than I would have thought and is probably best drunk over the next 8-10 years. Last tasted 11/02. -Robert Parker's Bordeaux Book 4th Edition
