Deep in hue, youthful crimson to rim. The nose reveals characters of roasted meat and dusky dark fruits. Firm tannins underpin expansive ripe, sweet blackberry fruit. Notes of provençal herbs, liquorice and discreet pepper are all discernible here in a wine of fine substance. Tightly wound, and certain to last, this is an impressive example, bold in nature, with purity and elegance and freshness that alludes to the outstanding 2001.
