(2007 Vintage) A generous and spicy nose, some roasted coffee notes and spices. The palate is elegant, sustained, balanced and flexible. Aromas of black currant berries e. Shards of dark chocolate. Finesse in tannins with a spicy finish, good length and a good texture.
Wine Spectator"Very ripe, with an almost raisiny edge. Light vanilla flavor. Full-bodied, with lots of ripe fruit and a long, caressing, silky finish. Gorgeous wine. A couple more years will make it just right.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. 8,300 cases made."
