Winemaker Notes

Deep dark color with mauve tints. A nose of spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate.

A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak ageing

Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Vivid ruby. Highly complex nose displays sexy, mineral-drenched red berry and kirsch qualities, along with anise, violet, vanilla and cola. The minerality continues on the palate, adding life to the pure red fruit flavors. Becomes spicier on the clean, impressively persistent finish. A superb blend of power and energy.

A very fine effort for the vintage, with slightly mature hints of coffee and sage mingling with a core of black cherry, incense and iron. The long, fine-grained finish still has good grip, but is also plenty supple, with a lingering hint of incense. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases made.

It has turned out to be outstanding, no easy task in a year with record-setting yields and many overly vegetal northern Rhones. This is a sexy, seductive 2004 to enjoy over the next 7-8 years.

He made wine for over 67 vintages and, at the beginning of his career, participated in the... View More
