2001, 2000 and 1999 Bordeaux (May 2002)

(tasted from cuve, on its finings) Good medium ruby. Superripe, liqueur-like aromas of exotic framboise and kirsch Rich and concentrated, with very sweet fruit flavors complemented by a torrefaction note of coffee. Very hard to assess accurately today but appears to be riper and denser than the 2001. Judgment deferred.
