- Tasting Notes By James Suckling: "Super refined with an excellent deep ruby color and intense aromas and flavors of cigar box, plum and berry; there's even a hint of mint. It is full-bodied but very reserved in style with fine tannins and a seductive, long finish."
The estate details the art and label: "An American painter and cartoonist of Romanian origin, Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) moved to the United States in 1941. He collaborated with the weekly magazine The New Yorker, where he soon became one of the most famous names. In a striking shortcut, he was able to define the essentially composite nature of his inspiration: "It is the whole history of art that influenced me, Egyptian painting, W-C graffiti, the primitives, the madmen, Seurat, children's drawings, tapestry, Paul Klee."
During the 1970s, Steinberg chose to emphasize the theme of human solitude: empty beaches where man is no more than a dot on the horizon, skies with pastel shades where the sun is represented by trompe l'oeil stamps.
It is this new look at the world, both peaceful and disenchanted, that is expressed in his drawing for the Mouton Rothschild 1983 label."
