"This is a classic 2001 with its highly aromatic nose that is just now beginning to turn secondary in character with plenty of Gevrey-style sauvage, earth and stone nuances that also suffuse the detailed yet supple and round medium-bodied flavors. The beautifully complex and lingering finish is still noticeably firm but not hard and I would be inclined to allow this some additional cellar time first before drinking up in earnest. Another interesting aspect of this wine is that while many '01s are now drinking quite well, this is still relatively backward." (Jan 2012)
