Performing better from bottle than it did from cask, the dark plum/purple-colored 2000 reveals sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of loamy soil, spice, and earth. The wine has filled out nicely, offering good flesh and attractive purity in a plump, hedonistic Pomerol style.

Really good red, with blackberries, tobacco and licorice. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, rich finish. Excellent wine. Much better than its 1998. 10,830 cases made.
