Complimentary adjectives are almost inappropriate for the extraordinary complexity fabulous richness and sheer nobleness and beauty of the 2002 Le Desir (52.7% Merlot 41.2% Cabernet Franc and tiny percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec). Dense aromas of creosote burning wood embers blackberries blueberries and violets are offered in the full-bodied fabulously complex perfume. Full-bodied with tremendous complexity a voluptuous texture and flavors of plum liqueur figs chocolate espresso and minerals this is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.
