"The 2001 Le Desir (50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Malbec) is an enormously concentrated, sweet yet elegant, medium to full-bodied effort revealing intense notes of red, black, and blue fruit intermixed with camphor, lead pencil shavings, and spice box characteristics. Rich and intensely flavored yet remarkably light on its feet for such power, with beautifully integrated wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin in the long finish, it will provide immense pleasure if drunk between 2004-2025. This is an out and out brilliant wine!"
