Gamy nose quickly moves to sweetly spiced plum fruit which continues on entry. Soon drying tannins kick in and it is a touch stalky on the finish. Should balance well with age.

I have the 1999 in the cellar its a 93/100. The 2000 was veritable cats p**s when i tried it. The 2004 is best described as average. Its a 86/100 rating. The nose is musty but then herbaceous to be provocative, the front is a little flat but it then opens to tobacco, juniperberry, aniseed and blackberry notes with a mild coffee finish, although not too long. Kind of like a low fat Greek wedding ... Enjoy with cheese, meats, chicken and the in-laws - nice but not close to orgiasmic. Maybe next year will be a 1999 repeat.

Bei dieser Cuvée von Stephan Graf von Neipperg handelt es sich um ein eindrückliches Beispiel dafür, wie mit Hingabe und Knowhow ein Klassewein gemacht werden kann. Dieser Bordeaux von Château d'Aiguilhe aus der noch wenig bekannten Region Côtes de Castillon vereint eine delikate, intensive Aromatik von reifen Früchten und markanten Ausbaunoten mit einer stoffig-leckeren Textur von grosser Dichte und Nachhaltigkeit. Das Charakteristische an diesem Wein: wunderschön zu geniessen in seiner Jugend; delikat nach einigen Jahren der Flaschenreife.
