A special 2000 in my opinion and getting better. Full of great depth of fruit with light acidity, coming around nicely.

this is a fabulous bordeaux. ready to drink but decant at least 30 minutes for it to start to open and it will improve for an hour. an almost perfect balance of tannins and fruit with a great nose and huge finish. enjoy now or hold 10 years or more.

Opening up nicely now, still young, but fairly amazaing. Hard to imagine waiting five more years. Blueberry, crushed rock, floral, casis, soft mouthfeel, balanced. A trimuph. Bordeaux at its best. Open 4 hours, decanted. You will be truly amazed. Save some for the chocolate desert.

This is on par with the 1990 Montrose vintage. It may be better. I like it but in my opinion needs another 10 to 15 years. 95 points. I decline to comment due to its infancy.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Franc. This is a wine to buy only if you are young and have will power. Darkly colored with nicely pigmented legs. Laser like aromas of oak, vanilla, and mint. Classic cassis and black cherry flavors. Quite tannic (fruit and wood) and tight right now but the wine shows good length in its finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
