2001 VINTAGE

90 Silky and elegant red, with fine tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a mineral aftertaste. Already a beauty to taste. Best after 2007. 7,500 cases made. –JS
90 Deep ruby/purple-colored with classic aromas of smoke, earth, black cherries, and creme de cassis, this elegant, layered 2001 possesses outstanding depth and richness as well as impeccable finesse, well-integrated wood, and a long, concentrated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.
Fine velvety colour, not too intense, but very attractive. Elegant, supple, understated nose, small berry fruit dominated by black currants, elegant and stylish, not at all a blockbuster, but beautifully balanced and will make a lovely wine for medium term.
17 Lovely cedary nose. Dry and correct. Lots of evolution already but the track record suggests it will have a long life too. Mint fresh, very long. More evolved and definitely lighter than most. Classic claret. - Jancis Robinson
