96 points -- A mahogany core with orange rim. The nose is beautiful, fresh with a roundness and voluptuousness that characterizes the vintage. Notes of fresh mint, Xmas cake and mulberry. The palate is very concentration, sensuous and supple. Ripe sweet red fruits, chocolate and roasted herbs cut with fine acidity. A Rubens-like sensuality. Long. Tasted January 2005.
