Tasting notes - Extract
(...) D'un rubis foncé et soutenu, il exhale un excellent nez de cassis et de mûre nuancé en arrière-plan de notes de chêne fumé. Doux et opulent, il est étonnamment accessible et rond, et développe une finale de très bon niveau. C'est l'une des plus belles réussites de ces dernières années. (...) Source: (1/99) Robert Parker
