Offering up an amazingly complex bouquet of cassis, exotic spices, white truffles, and dry aged beef, this full-bodied beauty hits the palate with a wealth of depth and richness as well as sweet tannins, yet stays silky, seamless, and light on its feet. Winemaker Claude Gros compares this to the 2001 (which I’ve rated as a perfect wine on more than one occasion), and you'll get no argument from me. Give bottles 2-4 years in the cellar and enjoy over the following 15-20 years. I suspect this will be the finest wine ever made from the Languedoc. collapse
