This is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this highly regarded terroir that has rarely been exploited to its maximum potential. Loads of chalk dust intertwined with sweet kirsch, black currants, licorice and camphor jump from the glass of this full-bodied wine, which has terrific fruit intensity, lots of glycerin, a lavish richness and a long, heady finish with light to moderate tannin. Give it 1-2 more years of bottle and drink it over the following 15. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at the Association de Crus Classé tasting at Grand Pontet. A very modern, quite glossy bouquet, although one of the better of its kind with pure black cherry, plum and cassis fruit, nicely delineated in an opulent style. The palate is full-bodied with fine tannins, judicious extraction here and it tells on the vibrant, minerally finish with excellent definition. Good length. This is a top class Saint Emilion. Tasted March 2010.

Beautiful aromas of espresso, dried fruits and hints of prunes. Full-bodied, with velvety chewy tannins and a fruity finish. Try in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Full-bodied, generous with a fine tannic structure. Classic Saint-Emilion with modern fruit and polish. More complexity with age. Drink 2016-2026
