Wine AdvocateThe youngest wine we tasted was the sensational 2002 Les Amis (100% Grenache from 100+-year-old vines). This is a Grenache aged in new oak (something I normally don't like), but at age seven it has thrown off any evidence of its barrique aging, exhibiting classic notes of black raspberries, black currants, lavender, earth, and pepper. Full-bodied with gorgeous purity, a multilayered texture, and a long finish with no hard edges, it should have another 8-10 years of life left.

Wine SpectatorPolished, round and deftly balanced to let the pure blueberry and plum flavors sail effortlessly over the palate, finishing with a refreshing zip of acidity without losing any of the smoothness. The finish sails on and on. Grenache. Drink now through 2010.
