International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($57-$59) Good full ruby. Roasted red and black fruits, smoke and licorice on the nose. Powerful, even a bit aggressive, with less sweetness and subtlety than the subsequent vintages. Finishes with big, chewy, ripe tannins and lingering notes of tobacco and leather. Very Graves in style. This appears to be in the process of shutting down in the bottle.

One can't say enough about this winery, which may still fly under the radar of most consumers. The fully mature 2000 displays gorgeous aromas of camphor, lead pencil shavings, unsmoked tobacco, plums, and black currants. With full body, a velvety texture, and beautiful weight, richness, and length, this superb wine should evolve, possibly improve for another 15 years. It's a beauty!

Aromas of spice, earth and meat with just a hint of tobacco. Fruity. Full-bodied, with spicy, tar and earthy character. Very intense, almost funky. Long, velvety finish. Intense wine.

I have always been impressed with the wines of this estate. The cepage usually consists of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged for approximately 18 months in a blend of 50% new oak and 50% used barrels. Interestingly, this chateau has its own cooperage on site. This deep dark rich wine displays a laser like nose of gamy intense dark fruits. The wine has excellent length with fruit that strongly continues through on its finish. Unlike many 2000s, maturity will come early for this wine.
