Very good medium ruby. Aromas of blackberry, violet and mint. Juicy and firm, with good density and restrained sweetness. Has a pliant texture over a firm underlying spine. Flavors of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Finishes with ripe, firm tannins.

A sleeper of the vintage, this excellent offering possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of melted asphalt, cedar wood, black currants, gravel, and tar. There is plenty of well-integrated tannin along with surprising size, richness, and aging potential (particularly for a Cru Bourgeois). Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015.
