The other wine we tasted, next to the Ch Pipeau - so we had a right bank bordeaux, and this one is a left bank bordeaux. In the beginning, this was closed, hard to drink, very tannic and has an astringent taste. After it was left to breathe for a while and with food, it showed a lot better. Noses of cherries and a bit of vanilla. It was earthy, slightly peppery, some minerals. Tannins were a bit acidic, finish was a bit hot but lingering. It does show a lot of character. I'd love to open one of these again in a couple more years, when its been aged for 10 yrs or more. Also need to have a piece of steak laying around when you open this one. WA 88-90; WS 89-91; WE 91

Young and slightly tannic with medium body and raisin with leather bouquet. Ripe fruit taste and opaque color. This wine will improve and should be left in the cellar until 2011 and beyond.

[Barrel tasting] Lots of berry and chocolate character with hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Impressive. Almost hard to believe, itrsquo;s so good. Almost 92ndash;94.

Complex, classic Bordeaux elegance with a depth and purity of fruit found only in the greatest of vintages. Blackberries, cedar, anise and wild blueberries flavor this medium- to full-bodied Cabernet blend. Young and balanced, this wine holds promise for 10ndash;15 years of enjoyment.

Considerable depth of flavor here, with complex ripe tannins, topping the dense black fruits. Therersquo;s spice from the wood, some stalky tannins from the fruit, and an edge of youth that will need 3ndash;4 years to show its potential.

Loads of ripe plum and berry, with hints of mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely integrated tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2005.

Offers raisin and dried fruit, with very ripe fruit aromas and coffee and oak undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. This is pumped up, but I like the flamboyant character. Best after 2011.

The aromas here are seriously woody, and that problem also appears on the palate. It has fruit, but the weight to balance is not there yet. This should develop over the next 4-5 years, but the wood is always going to be a major feature.
