But what a flavor profile! A massive explosion of profound and intense cherries raspberries boysenberries and strawberries coated my palate. It is a medium-to-full-bodied densely-fruited and powerful wine that is perfectly balanced and delineated. Projected maturity: 2005-2018.

Full-bodied showing gorgeous fruit this is very intense. It holds your attention as it settles its foundations into the palate tightening its grip with seductive cassis blackberry fresh acidity and terrific floral character. A tamed monster. Drink now through 2026. -PM

A gorgeous, spicy and expressive nose of mostly black fruit aromas combines with rich, sweet and still tight medium full and quite firmly structured flavors that possess a long though slightly edgy and austere finish. Note that this bottle showed better than the one reviewed in the big Richebourg retrospective held in October, 2001. I would not touch another bottle for at least 3 to 5 years and this easily has 20 year+ potential as it will require a long time to completely unwind. Tasted on multiple occasions with consistent notes. 2021+
