Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: France: Bordeaux Left Bank
Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red
Deep ruby/purple, with a tight but promising nose of herb-tinged black currants, graphite, vanilla, and smoke, this medium-bodied wine is elegant, with very pure, concentrated fruit, moderate extract, and a long finish. The wine is reaching its adolescence and is certainly accessible, although far from full maturity. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016. Last tasted, 4/02. Tasted January 2003. 89 Points Robert M.
