Lovely intensity of blueberries and spices, with hints of sandalwood. Full body, with fine tannins and a bright, fresh finish. Pretty combination of red black fruits and citrus. Try in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
Blueberry and mineral aromas, with violets too. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and attractive
Tasted at the Association de Crus Classé tasting at Grand Pontet. Lifted black cherry and blueberry fruit on the nose with good definition and freshness. Well integrated new oak. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, harmonious, quite suave with lovely black cherry, blueberry and cooked meat flavours on the well defined finish. Very fine. Tasted March 2010.
Very good this year. Smooth, suave and concentrated (low yields due to the hail). Gourmand but balanced as well. Drink 2014-2024
Showing far superior from bottle than it did from barrel, the proprietor (the same as the famous military and corporate jet manufacturer) has turned out a sexy, opulent, fruit-laden wine with an abundance of black cherries, black currants, spring flowers and some background earth and licorice. This is a lusty, flamboyant and extroverted style of wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate February 2012
