A very densely fruited and wonderfully complex nose redolent of plum, red fruits, earth, game, smoke, underbrush and spice hints introduce impressively concentrated, textured and precise medium full flavors that stain the palate while coating it on the solidly persistent finish. This too is a serious and cool effort that will require ample time to arrive at its peak though it's not quite as structured as the Bonnes Mares.

($165) Good deep, full red. Brooding aromas of black raspberry, brown spices, smoke and underbrush. Fat, rich and sweet, with a primary character to the spicy red berry and mineral flavors. Backward and not yet expressive but this boasts firm, nicely buffered tannins and a vibrant, mounting finish. I found this a bit hard-edged from barrel a year ago, but today it's merely young and in need of patience.

Dark ruby with a pale rim, like all the 2004s. Light but satisfyingly autumnal nose. Very rich palate attack for a 2004 – bravo! Really resonates and reverberates. Quite tense and concentrated. A real testament to Grand Cru terroir. Rich and great zest. Already giving lots of pleasure. Long. Still evolving. Relatively racy for a Roche though none the worse for it.

Rich and smoky, with loads of spice and sweet cherry. A complex, multidimensional red. The tannins are firm and a bit dry, yet overall this is well-balanced. Has a long finish of bacon fat.
