- St Emilion
"A successful offering for the vintage, the 2002 exhibits a deep ruby/purple/plum color as well as a sweet, forward style with black fruits intermixed with espresso roast, lavender, and Provencal herbs. Medium to full-bodied, lush, and round, with fine purity, ripeness, and surprising body and sweetness for a right bank 2002, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years".
"Impressive dark color for the vintage, with lots of grapey vanilla with black licorice aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Wild finish. Tastes like cinnamon and cardamom. Angélus kicks. Well done. Best after 2007. 4,830 cases made". JS
