International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of bitter cherry, roast coffee, dark chocolate and tobacco. Fairly dense and thick, but still youthfully tight; a bit heavy for this wine at this stage. Flavors of bitter cherry, dark chocolate and spicy oak. Finishes long and firmly tannic. A second barrel showed a more perfumed, Burgundian nose; hints of herbs and tobacco leaf on the palate; and less obvious sweetness but more complexity. Will this have the concentration for outstanding? Carrying just 12.2% alcohol, but then these stressed vines rarely produce freakishly high grape sugars.

Dark, rich, curranty nose. Silly price! A little sweet and simple when tasted immediately after the Lafleur 2001. Falls away on the end. A bit spindly with some still awkward tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 153

A tremendous effort, this 500-case cuvee (one of Bordeaux's original garage operations) is even better in 2001 than it was in 2000. Its deep ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of creme de cassis, cherry liqueur, plums, licorice, caramel, and sweet toast. This flamboyant, opulently textured, rich, concentrated Pomerol is a brilliant success as well as one of the wines of the vintage for 2001. Its low acidity and extraordinary ripeness suggest early drinkability, but it has proven it can last for 18-20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

I've always liked this wine; it's better and much less expensive than the overhyped 2000. Intense aromas of tarragon, berry and blackberry. This is full, racy and structured. It develops wonderfully in the glass, showing a thick and caressing palate. Long and beautiful. Still very young. I would give it more time.
