Tasting notes

Deliciously fruity, with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe, sweet, densely juicy. — Roger Voss

Plenty of ripe cassis and chocolate with a hint of smoke on the nose lead you into a ripe and velvety Pauillac that now gives a lot of pleasure thanks to the excellent harmony and good length. Drink or hold.

Some austerity is still evident here, even after 10 years. There are ripe cassis notes and rich aromatics, held in at this point by those big Pauillac tannins. Good typicity but a touch subdued. (JA)
