Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 16.0

The deepest, darkest crimson right out to the rim. Very rich and exotic and modern on the nose. Lots of sweet black fruits. Dark cocoa aromas. The acidity is a bit harsh – indeed the whole wine is a bit of an assault on the palate – like orange pith. Smooth texture but the acidity dominates the fruit and there’s a powderiness on the finish. Not beautiful. [07/04/2008]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018

Robert Parker – 86

A deep ruby/garnet core. The nose is very ripe and sweet, distinctly lacking definition with notes of macerated black cherries, a touch of prune and boiled sweets. More Napa Valley than Bordeaux. The palate is full-bodied, very tannic with touches of black pepper sprinkled over chewy black fruit, leading towards a more tarry finish that is devoid of freshness and joy. That is it: a joyless Saint Emilion. Tasted March 2008. [Neal Martin, 01/03/2008]

Vinous – 91+

Full medium ruby. Blackberry, plum syrup, licorice and a whiff of truffle on the nose. Bright, deep flavors of black fruits and game. A very powerful, muscular style of St. Emilion, with a stronger impression of acidity than the ’99. Distinctly tough on the back end, which features chewy, slightly drying tannins that will require patience. This was bottled in June of 2000, a bit earlier than the previous two vintages of this super-cuvee. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2001]
