Extremely attractive aromas of blackberries and currants with just a hint of mineral and oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Like I said from barrel, it's powerful and fast. Serious stuff. Best after 2010. Collectible. From Franc —James Suckling
Stick your nose in this and it says something: "I am special." Deep and generous aromas of blackberries, fresh tobacco and minerals. It's full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a superlong finish. Like a fine cashmere sweater. Best after 2010. 22,000 —James Suckling
An ultrapretty and succulent red with berry, tobacco and tarragon character. Full-bodied, with gorgeous tannins and a long, long finish. Almost Burgundian. Refined and seductive. I like this better than the 2000. Best after 2006. Collectible. —James Suckling
Enticing aromas of coffee, dark chocolate and hints of berries. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Refined and inviting to taste now, but much better with age. Best after 2007. 2,000 cases made. Collectible. From France. —James Suckling
Silky, rich and packed with flavor, this glides across the palate, unfurling its apricot, honey and lemon notes gracefully. It's supported by a vibrant structure and coasts effortlessly to a lingering finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,100 cases made. High —Bruce Sanderson
