Daniel Rogov has a nice complimentary tasting note on this wine on another Internet forum but suggests it will be at its best after 2003 or 2004 and will keep until 2010 or 2015 with proper storage. You probably should credit him by name if you use his description. He says : an exquisite wine with the potential of being one of the very best from this Chateau. Full bodied, with a dark royal purple towards black color, and loaded with currant, raspberrty, toasty oak flavors and aromas this ... wine combines concentration, richness and elegance. Approachable now but wait one or two more years to let the still firm tannins modify a bit. The wine should cellar nicely until 2010 - 2015. (He rates it 94)
I adjusted the "wait two or three years" to
"wait one or two years" because the tasting note is from 2001.
