Weitere VerkostungsnotizenRobert Parker:
A stunning sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon was made by winemaking guru/consultant Stephane Derenoncourt. The wine’s 14.5% alcohol tells you something about its amazing richness and intensity. Aromas of smoke, lead pencil shavings, sweet kirsch and black currants soar from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, opulent, fleshy wine. Some tannin lurks beneath the surface, but the overall impression is one of opulence and extravagance. Drink this beauty over the next decade or more.

Black! Sumptuous balance of super-ripe fruit and structure and freshness. Round and easy and apparently effortless – in terms of enjoying it. Only on the end does one become aware of the fine tannins and the need to keep this. Very distinctive. Dry but not drying end.

With smoke, spicy berries and fennel scents, round textures and a sweet, chocolate, blackberry filled finish, this remains one of the top values in Bordeaux.
