Average critic rating : 93.5 points



This wine has always tasted superb. Still a dark purple/garnet color, it offers an exotic bouquet of roasted coffee, caramelized herbs, sweet cassis, blackberries, chocolate, and licorice. The explosive bouquet is followed by a low acid, full-bodied, chewy wine with sweet tannin and ripe, jammy fruit and glycerin. It hit its peak of maturity 4-5 years ago, but is holding nicely. Consume it over the next 5-6 years.Release price: ($375.00/case) Wine Advocate.June, 2009



A very fine wine. Medium ruby-garnet color. Raspberry, mineral, berry and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a silky texture. Long finish. Best ever from this estate?--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2004. 8,500 cases made. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000
