Tasting Notes

A tremendous effort, this 500-case cuvee (one of Bordeaux’s original garage operations) is even better in 2001 than it was in 2000. Its deep ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of creme de cassis, cherry liqueur, plums, licorice, caramel, and sweet toast. This flamboyant, opulently textured, rich, concentrated Pomerol is a brilliant success as well as one of the wines of the vintage for 2001. Its low acidity and extraordinary ripeness suggest early drinkability, but it has proven it can last for 18-20 years.

Provenance

This cellar is filled with outstanding Bordeaux from both 2009 and 2010 vintages and has just arrived, refrigerated from Alberta via our friends at Expeditr. The collector bought these wines as an investment, direct from winery and laid them down in his home cellar with full temperature and humidity control. Upon moving homes, this collector needed some extra space and decided to liquidate some of bottles. With many 100 pointers, this is a collection you will not want to miss out on!
