I don’t drink much Bordeaux but this 2001 reminded me what all the fuss is about. Fruit was dialed back and tertiary flavors of old books and tobacco emerged. Enough acidity that you really wanted the next careful sip. At Wally’s wine bar in Beverly Hills. Where people with way too much money and little clue shop. But treasures await for those who aren’t chasing a label.

Tobacco, spices and good acidity. Not overly ripe.

Inky purple in color the nose is pure violets and Kirsch liquor with a twinge of truffles and funk. Palate is full of candied cherries and sugar plums with crushed gravel and a tinge of sweet tobacco on the finish. Needs a long decant. Beautiful

Beautiful drinking vintage of HB that had layers & depth displaying cassis, dark berry fruits, cedar, leather, mineral, spices & tobacco.
