The 2002 Esprit de Beaucastel (a 2800-case blend of 57% Mourvedre 27% Syrah 10% Grenache and 6% Counoise) is the finest dry red this estate has yet produced. The Counoise component provides violet and floral notes the Mourvedre tannin structure and rugged notions of leather animal fur and tree bark the Syrah offers blackberries as well as creme de cassis and the Grenache warmth generosity glycerin and opulence. An intense dense purple-colored complex red with large body as well as a sense of elegance and definition it should be a whopper when released next year.

A brilliant effort ripe rich and deeply flavored with juicy concentrated black cherry wild berry spice and peppery scents. The flavors flow across and saturate the palate finishing with a long intense persistent aftertaste that echoes ripe fruit and spice. Ripe tannins and a dash of cedary oak round out the finish. Mourvèdre Syrah Grenache and Counoise. Drink now through 2008. 2000 cases made. -JL
