  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($22; a 70/15/15 blend of merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon) Red-ruby color. High-pitched aromas of raspberry and spicy oak. Sweet and fat but fresh in the mouth, with flavors of plum, smoked meat, tobacco and oak spice. Finishes with ripe, broad tannins and good persistence.

    Dark crimson. Very rich and gamey and almost Argentine(!) on the nose. But much fresher and more polished on the palate even if it's considerably sweeter than the Bordeaux norm. Not as harmonious as some with some slightly awkward tannins still and very slightly hot on the end but certainly pretty impressive, especially for those seeking mass. Very opulent.

    Rich and solid red with fantastically silky tannins and cool mineral and berry character. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is very good indeed.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    The 2001 offers a huge spectrum of aromas, including notes of smoke, mocha, chocolate, coffee, and loads of blackberry, cherry, and currant fruit. The superb aromatics are followed by an elegant, medium-bodied, deliciously supple-textured, expansive, fleshy, beautifully pure, well-delineated Pomerol. It is a brilliant effort as well as one of the candidates for the wine of the appellation in 2001.

Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
