The Annual Red Bordeaux Report (May 2003)

Medium red-ruby. Aromas of roasted plum and stewed tomato. Fat, silky and sweet, with flavors of liqueur-like red berries, minerals and truffle. Finishes with big but sweet tannins and very good length. But a bit heavyhanded next to the 2000 La Dominique, without that wine’s verve in the middle palate.
