Winemaker Notes

Number 9 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2002!

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Big wine, but so reined and sleek, it comes across as delicate on the palate. Plenty of finely tuned oak, with vanilla, chocolate and mocha aromas that blend into the sweet red and blackberry to produce a classy and satiny wine that is surprisingly aristocratic for this appellation. Like a charming red Burgundy from chambolle-musgny.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Good deep red. Complex aromas of smoky red and black fruits, licorice, truffle and earth; distinct suggestions of surmaturite. Broad, sweet and lush; silky and voluminous, with a complete absence of rough edges. Finishes subtle and long, with very suave tannins. Has the balance to age, but delicious already.
