Classic Beaucastel earthy/meaty/gamey nose with an undercurrent of stewed strawberries, Chinese dried plums and soy. Quite elegant on the palate with a medium to full body and a reasonably taut structure of medium to high acidity and a medium level of velvety tannins. Layer upon layer of spices and savoury flavours. Long finish. Drink now to 2024. Tasted August 2009. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Roasted aromas of black fruits leather maple syrup and mocha. Initially a bit tight on the palate but showed a lush seamless texture as it opened in the glass without losing its definition. Not quite as dense as the 2001 but very full in the mouth with a higher-pH impression. Finishes very long with the ripe tannins coating the front teeth. 93 points

It's distinctive and ought to reveal wonderful terroir with age but for now it hasn't come together. Needs time... Clean and fresh bursting with fruit and spices.
