Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, April 2003, Score: 90
taster image
A model of elegance, symmetry, and balanced power, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2000 displays sweet aromas of plums, currants, tobacco, and smoke. The wine possesses abundant power, concentration, extract, glycerin, and length. This elegant, expansive, juicy, layered, medium-bodied effort should prove reasonably long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.
Clive Coates, March 2004, Score: -

Full colour. Badly corked. Impossible to taste.

Pessac Léognan

In 1987, the communal appellation, Pessac-Léognan, was created distinguishing a "cru" from within the larger Graves district. As it is a warmer region, its grapes are often picked 2-3 weeks earlier than the Médoc. The most renowned châteaux of this communal appellation include Haut Brion, La Mission Haut Brion, Laville Haut Brion, Haut Bailly and Domaine de Chevalier.

Château Malartic-Lagravière

For many years, Malartic Lagravière was an underachiever. With high yields and poor viticulturalmanagement, it produced mediocre wines. However, in 1997 it was purchased by the Bonnie familywho have invested heavily in the estate creating a state-of-the-art chai that is so modern it could be featured in the next Bond film. Indeed, it even includes a cooling system that uses ultrasound to break up water particles which have been purified by ultraviolet rays. Wow. A second wine has further helped them harness better concentration and ripeness in their grand vin.

Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc

Merlot holds centre stage here with the two Cabernets in supporting roles. Another opportunity to appreciate the blender's skill as the soft fruit and rich structure of the Merlot is balanced by the characteristic currant fruit and firm tannins of Cabernet. This combination is used throughout Bordeaux, notably in St Emilion, Pessac Leognan and the Haut Medoc.
