Again and again this wine surprises me on the positive side. Especially when the price is factored in. After many repeat tastings (10+) its consistency is remarkable. I would probably put it’s peak at 2010-2011, but it still hold it own nicely and pairs with the rack of lamb handsomely. Perhaps somewhat sentimentally, but this is a 3+ for me.

Counter to the ’98-’00 vintages the ’01 is laced with fresh fruit, more youthful and is still evolving. Not as elegant as the ’98, as well balanced as the ’00, nor as rich as the ’99, its future evolution is probably most interesting of them.
