Scores and tasting notes
This medium-to-dark blue/ruby-colored wine offers an intense nose of violets, sweet cherries, and minerals. On the palate, this succulent, thick, velvety-textured, medium-to-full-bodied, and seductive wine is crammed with candied raspberries, sugar-coated cherries, and stones. Well-focused and pure, it hides its structured character under wave after wave of rich fruit. It should be at its best between 2001 and 2006.
