The 2001 vintage in Bordeaux hides some fine wines that are often underestimated in comparison to the much-celebrated, and great, 2000. This fine example shows signs of evolution in its colour and on the nose. Complex and hard to describe, the fruit is still present, but tertiary aromas (animal scents, etc.) take the front stage. Silky, it tastes fruity in its great elegance. Delicious and at its peak.
