Tasting Notes

Knock out chambolle fruit trimmed in obvious earth notes and a hint of smoke is coupled with medium weight, rich, moderately structured flavors that display exquisite balance and fine length. Beautiful juice and if this continues to add complexity as it has since it was bottled, my score will clearly be conservative.

Score: 90Allen Meadows,, March 2004

Bright medium-deep red. Subtle, highly aromatic nose of raspberry, flowers and minerals. Sweet, dense and concentrated; strong in extract and already remarkably perfumed in the mouth. Strong but ripe acids give the wine terrific verve and snap. Finishes with firm but thoroughly ripe tannins and excellent grip. From a very low crop level of 20 hectoliters per hectare, and it shows.

Score: 91Stephen Tanzer,, March 2001

Solid savoury nose with a hint of liquorice. Lots of acidity – not nearly as charming as the 1999 – pretty tough and cussed really. Put it away, please! Pretty dry finish but ultra-correct and clean. Suffered initially from being served immediately after the 1999. Very cool in many senses.
