"The 2001 Bourriquot is a dead-ringer for a St.-Emilion, not surprising in view of its blend of 62% Cabernet Franc and 38% Merlot. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet scents of tobacco, spice box, menthol, and black fruits. Reminiscent of a Chateau Figeac or Cheval Blanc, but clearly made with ripe California fruit, it still has some tannin to shed, so give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 10-15. This is a stylish, provocative effort."
