This is one of St.-Emilion's most impressively constituted and expressive wines. From its saturated purple color to its soaring aromatics (pain grille jammy black fruits chocolate roasted coffee and smoke) this full-bodied meaty chewy powerful wine is loaded with extract sweet tannin for the vintage and possesses a layered multidimensional finish. It should continue to improve for a decade and drink well for 15-20 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.

Superb dark ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry cassis and smoke. Lush layered and sweet; already shows compelling inner-mouth flavor surprising in light of the 3.6 pH which is lower than normal for this wine... Superb dark ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry cassis and smoke. Lush layered and sweet; already shows compelling inner-mouth flavor surprising in light of the 3.6 pH which is lower than normal for this wine. Still the acids are harmonious and ripe. Longer and sweeter on the back end than the '97. Tannins are dense and mouthcoating but thoroughly ripe.
