There was a very slight taint on this one bottle, hence the not so high s score.

Sour and savory nose. Elegant and fine on the palate. Incredible

Bright herbal and cranberry notes on the nose. Somewhat floral. The palate is amazing! Both red and black fruits with menthol and Herbs de Provence. Complex and a lengthy finish. This is an awesome wine!

Still a bit wound up on day one, great aromas. Day two opened and showed the goods, super sophisticated pen inky mineral, menthol tobacco, both tart and oozy cherries. Give it 10 more years to peak.

2001 - a great vintage of a traditional 125 year old producer. Long palate with depth and balance. Reminds me of what called me into wine-loving.
