My wife and I had the opportunity to taste this great bordeaux last night. Wow. Really really smooth. Great body. Great head tones. And, a great finish. Often when you drink a red...you give it that splash through the palette....when you finally swallow...you get that tannin "sting"....In some wines it can actually come off a bit 'bitter'.....this was smooth smooth smooth all the way through. We loved it!
Delicious, smoooth, dense

(Barrel tasting) Glorious aromas of currants, blackberries and cherries with hints of vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied, with exuberant fruit. Velvety tannins. Soft and round mouthfeel. This is supercharged with fruit. Wonderful purity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Very low yields this year. Best ever from here?
Saturated medium ruby. Inky cassis, black raspberry, graphite and pungent minerality on the very ripe nose. Dense, rich and silky, with a brooding inky minerality and an almost liqueur-like dark fruit sweetness leavened by a savory peppery element. This very ripe, deep and concentrated wine boasts wonderful lushness without any undue weight thanks to its sheer energy. Like its neighbor Mouton-Rothschild, Pontet-Canetrsquo;s 2006 conveys a powerful impression of soil character. Finishes with serious dusty tannins and superb lingering sweetness. Should be long-lived.
A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001. Best after 2008.
Black in color, with aromas of blackberry, black licorice, tar, mineral and fresh flowers. Full-bodied and powerful, with ultrafine tannins that last for minutes on the palate. A polished, thought-provoking wine. Shows wonderful purity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2014.
(tasted sur colle Bright medium ruby. Aromas of black fruits, violet, cedar and mint, with a light leafiness. Very suave in the mouth, with a sweetness and softness that belie its very high (82%) cabernet content. This boasts impressive inner-mouth f... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2002 Ducru Beaucaillou 750ml
Bright medium ruby. Perfumed, vibrant aromas of raspberry, currant, minerals, spices and cigar box. Sweet and densely packed; superripe yet fresh, with brisk acidity giving definition and lift to the lush but sappy flavors. Wonderfully seamless and fine. A big wine with noble building tannins and compelling lingering sweetness. This has the tannic spine and sheer concentration of material to age for three decades or more.
