Made in an elegant, surprisingly low key style for La Mondotte, the concentrated, delicious, opaque purple-colored 2001 builds incrementally on the palate. An impressive bouquet of black cherries, creme de cassis, toast, and minerals is followed by a medium to full-bodied effort with nicely integrated wood, acidity, and tannin as well as a long finish. This is a brilliant wine, and one of the finest efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2017.

Solid red with loads of spicy, rich berry fruit, with just the hint of spice. Full-bodied, with a well-integrated fruit and tannin structure. Long finish. Tight and firm now. Needs time. This is very serious. Best after 2006. 740 cases made.

Fresh, bright red-ruby color. Roasted plum, currant, game, leather and sexy oak spices on the nose. Thick and broad on entry, then fat and rich in the middle, with a nicely restrained sweetness. Wonderfully layered, deep wine, showing more power than the Canon La Gaffeliere in this vintage.
