Preposterously great buy at Premier Cru, this wine has an entrancing nose of frambois, kirsch, and abundant cloves-like spiciness. Great balance and finish, and will probably only get better for the next several years. Worth twice the price. We can only hope Tardieu-Laurent (and Premier Cru!) can hold the price line on wines like this. - HK 2004-08-29
