Red-ruby. Blackcurrant, graphite and minerals on the nose. Sweet, fleshy and dense, with an impeccable sugar/acid balance. Strong mineral tones and firm acids. Finishes long and gripping, with excellent tannic spine and lift. A bit like the 2002 Les Forts de Latour but turned up a notch or two. But not quite as perfumed as the young 2004.

Deep garnet colored, the nose here is a little closed revealing somewhat subtle notes of red currants, mulberries, plums and coffee with a touch of dried Mediterranean herbs. Medium bodied and taut in the mouth, it gives firm tannins, crisp acid and a satisfyingly complex earthy finish.
