Winemaker Notes

Ruby red with red vermillion tints. On the nose, small red fruits, blackberry and floral violet aromas.Intensely aromatic, powerful but full of finesse. Supple with balance between the finesse of the aromas and an explosive richness due to the concentration of the wine. Greatly expressive of the terroir. Overall, a feminine wine with voluptuous silky texture and intense aromas.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator

A lilting, perfumy style, with incense, warm raspberry ganache and black tea aromas leading the way for mixed berry sorbet, mesquite and mocha notes. Supersilky on the long, alluring finish. A beauty, with impressive purity for the vintage. Drink now through 2023. 400 cases made.

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

Bright red. Exotic bouquet of red berries, cherry, minerals and baking spices. Silky and sweet, offering fresh raspberry and cherry-cola flavors, suave tannins and gentle violet pastille and graphite qualities. Very elegant and impressively understated, with enticing juiciness on the finish. "This wants to be Burgundy," noted Guigal.

This lush, round, generously-endowed, sensual 2004 is best consumed over the next 10-12 years.
