A deep garnet colour. A well-defined blackcurrant nose that is still muted. The palate is very well balanced and harmonious with well-knit tannins. Quite minerally with fresh acidity. Feminine, this is not a powerful wine, but very suave and intellectual. The tannins are still a little coarse on the finish but no doubt these will smooth out in time. Very fine. Tasted October 2003. -NM
