Saturated ruby-red. Sappy, rather wild aromas of raspberry, smoke, tar and mulch; more deeply pitched than the Grands-Echezeaux but still quite tangy. Fat, sweet and full, but less precise and lively than the Grands-Echezeaux; flavors of redcurrant and iron. Fairly rich wine, finishing with good breadth and dusty, slightly dry tannins. I'd be a bit more optimistic about the ultimate potential of this wine if it were more primary today. Tasted March 2001. 90+ Points Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
