A nose in which violet and red fruit predominate over distinguished woodiness. The full attack is followed by a very fleshy structure with plenty of volume and breeding. The high quality tannins reveal no trace of roughness. Impressive length.
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001. Best after 2008.
Red-ruby. Cool aromas of blackcurrant, espresso and menthol. Then sweet and pliant in the mouth, with concentrated, very pure currant, chocolate and mint flavors. Wonderfully smooth for the vintage. Broadens out impressively on the back end, finishing with firm, ripe tannins.
