STEPHEN TANZERGood deep red. Less expressive but still utterly sexy nose offers plum, raspberry, flowers, smoke and earth. Hints at its superb volume but this is quite closed and tightly knit today, and much less expressive and sweet than La Tache. But this superconcentrated wine seemed to gain sweetness with aeration, showing an increasingly fat, seamless texture without any loss of energy as it opened in the glass. Really saturates the palate on the aftertaste, where the tannins are thoroughly buffered by the wine's strong extract and superb depth.
WINE SPECTATOROffers classic green and leafy R-C aromas, with sweet berry and cherry underneath. This is intense, sappy, silky, rich and long, featuring berry notes that are bright and pure. Shows terrific persistence on the refined finish.—Non-blind 2004 DRC tasting (February 2007). Best from 2013 through 2030.
BURGHOUNDA supremely beautiful if very reserved nose with a stunning mélange of spice and floral notes, particularly violets, red and black berry fruit aromas plus nuances of earth, game and smoke. The equally reserved, pure and unbelievably precise and pure medium-full flavors underpinned by sophisticated tannins and huge length.
