"Easily the best wine among the three bottled vintages with classic young Clos de Vougeot austerity and prominent, serious tannins. Beautifully perfumed with a mix of red and black fruits, especially blackberries followed by very dense, extremely intense, wonderfully pure and superbly detailed flavors and a long, elegant finish. To be sure, this is austere, old style Burgundy and those who prefer an upfront, relatively supple style will probably not find this to their liking. For those who have the patience to wait however, this should evolve into a very special wine." (Jan 2002)
