WINEMAKER'S TASTING NOTES Les Pierres has some mystery and intrigue. It hints at rich, complex layers of depth but is not obvious and forward. Deeply aromatic and enticing, the wine exhibits aromas of orange blossoms, lime zest and minerals with subtle notes of sweet oak. Earthy, mineral highlights are pronounced in the mouth, complemented by citrus and green apple fruit, balanced by understated smoky notes. Elegant and delicate, the 1999 Les Pierres unfolds with more and more complexity, with a bright finish of berry sorbet and hints of caramel and crème brûlée. -Terry Ernest Adams
Aromas of herbal tea, licorice and blackberry are accentuated by hints of spice and perfume. On the mouth, the wine is full bodied, but with a smooth mid-palate that showcases flavors of cherry and truffles alongside tobacco undertones.
