A Vancouver-based cellar who purchased all wines on release from trusted importers/agents. Wines were stored professionally from the time of purchase. Looking to pair down his cellar, Iron Gate is delighted to bring these wines to auction.
The wine in this lot has a score of 93 from Allen Meadows and the following tasting note -Still deep ruby color. The expressive nose remains cool and fresh with its notes of menthol, wood, red and dark currant and pungent humus-inflected earth scents. The highly energetic broad-shouldered flavors are robust and muscular though not particularly rustic on the mineral-suffused finish that is still quite firm thanks to the somewhat strict tannins. This is a wine where it's not quite accurate to describe it as tough but it would be fair to say that the '02 is not a refined Corton. I would further observe that while it's nowhere near ready, it's also not clear that the fruit is going to outlast the structure. In short, this is presently in a bit of 'no man's land' where it's definitely not ready now but it may not necessarily repay extended keeping either. In short, pessimists will opt to drink this now with food and optimists will settle in for an extended holding period.
