($69-$95) Full red-ruby. Vinous aromas of currant, milk chocolate, tobacco, hot stones and leather. Juicy and fresh but leaner than the 2005 or 2006, with classically dry flavors of redcurrant, plum and smoke. In contrast to the showy 2005, this seems to be going into a shell, with the serious tannins currently dominating the wine's fruit.

This brilliant blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot (which was harvested very late) reveals complex aromas of lead pencil shavings, burning embers, black currants, cherries, and blackberries as well as a subtle smoky charcoal component. Medium to full-bodied and spicy with sweet tannin and an opulent, fleshy personality, it is a terrific effort from this great Pessac-Leognan vineyard. Consume it now and over the next 15+ years.

Loads of grape, chocolate, berry and tobacco character. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, caressing finish. Pretty and rich, with a meat and berry undertone that's almost decadent.

Full bodied, smoky, rich. Not the greatest Pape Clement but ok for a 2004.

Magrez?s flagship wine has been edging it?s way closer and closer to the two rivals of Graves, La Mission and Haut Brion, and this vintage his territory is marked even more firmly in that lofty heir. Wonderfully pungent scents of truffles, wild flowers, underbrush, cedar and black fruits ascend from the glass. The palate is much more tannic and unevolved than the SHL, and patience will undoubtedly reward who ever is savvy enough to purchase this wine. Outstanding claret. Drink from 2012-2030
