Very pure, youthful aromas of raspberry, garrigue and pungent minerals; this smells like a five-year-old Burgundy. Round and sweet in the mouth, showing excellent volume for the vintage but also captivating tangy acidity to frame and intensify the flavors of red berries, minerals and black mushroom. Wonderfully suave, seamless wine with great class--and incredibly fresh and youthful for the vintage. Finishes with palate-staining persistence and pungent red fruits. This remarkable wine, probably the youngest 2002 I tasted this fall, still has decades of life ahead of it.

A big red round and sappy exhibiting black cherry kirsch and sweet spice aromas and flavors. Picks up some chocolate and smoke midpalate with the richness and exuberant fruit of the vintage.

An expressive extremely ripe black fruit nose nuanced by hints of torrefaction earth and coffee are followed by soft delicious round and textured flavors underpinned with completely buffered tannins and loads of ripe... An expressive extremely ripe black fruit nose nuanced by hints of torrefaction earth and coffee are followed by soft delicious round and textured flavors underpinned with completely buffered tannins and loads of ripe extract. This is a powerful yet supple wine that does seem to carry its alcohol well with only a trace of finishing warmth. This is a delicious and unbelievably long wine though less elegant than several previous vintages and as I noted above I prefer the '01 to this.

Fairly dark ruby. Same preciseness as the 2006, but more developed. Oak begins to take a back seat with minerally, sweet strawberry compote fruit coming to the fore. Meatier on the nose than on the palate. Quite compact... Fairly dark ruby. Same preciseness as the 2006, but more developed. Oak begins to take a back seat with minerally, sweet strawberry compote fruit coming to the fore. Meatier on the nose than on the palate. Quite compact and less open. Fantastic acidity and creaminess. Less fine than 2006 and more powerful perhaps. 17+/20 (WS)
