Average critic rating : 88.33 points



It was surprising to find a hint of herbs in this 2009 Pauillac, but despite its progress over recent years, this classified growth can’t seem to get over the top. Attractive, elegant, crunchy, red and black currant notes emerge from this medium-bodied, dark ruby/purple-colored effort. Drink it over the next 15 years. (Tasted once.) Wine Advocate.April, 2010



Tasted at Vintex and the UGC. This is certainly a better nose than displayed in recent years with ripe black fruits and raspberry coulis, yet there is an underlying greenness that peeks its head out in time. The palate is not bad at all, well balance with fine tannins, cohesive with touches of cigar box interlacing the black fruit towards the poised finish. It is just that soupcon of greenness that niggles on the aromatics, otherwise this would be a great Croizet-Bages. I suspect this will improve in barrel and may come out the other side better…Tasted March 2010



Blackish crimson. Briary rim. Sweet, slightly simple nose. But lots of density and lift on the finish. Quite high volatility but fun! Just a bit dry on the end. Faded a bit fast.
