[Barrel tasting] Sweet tobacco and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Concentrated for the appellation. Well done.
Ruby-red with purple highlights. Sexy nose offers plum, cassis, vanilla and sweet spices. Enters fruity and rich, showing ripe flavors similar to the aromas and finishing with rather soft tannins. Not especially long, and in need of a bit more finesse (the otherwise pleasant finish picks up a touch of astringency with air), but I like this winersquo;s tasty fruit and vinosity.
Barrel sample. Firmly tannic and rather jammy at the same time, a wine that shows a rustic edge, but does retain the juiciness of the year.
[Barrel sample] Well balanced, the fruit fresh but ripe. There is an edge of dry tannins which slashes through the fruit, giving a firm, dry aftertaste.
Nicely focused, with a plum skin frame to the black cherry and black currant fruit, which is then followed by tobacco and lingering smoke notes. Drink now through 2012.
A delicious yet affordable wine from the Barons de Rothschild. Elegant dried cassis and black cherry, with subtle earthy notes woven through. Visions of lamb chops, prime rib or pot roast dance through your head. From the legendary 2000 vintage!
A pretty and balanced red, with blackberry and mineral character. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2007.
