A classic Bordeaux with all the expectant Old World earthiness. From a chateau only renovated 30 years ago, and grapes planted in 1850, this full-bodied wine is quite fresh and elegant with notes of forest floor black currant and toasted cedar box. 2001 is a collector vintage, perhaps overshadowed by 2000.

Still fresh and elegant with spicy notes, with balanced tannins that round in the mouthfeel and traces of aged oak end the wine.
