Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Lots of minerals, berries and cherries, with hints of earth. Full-bodied, with lovely silky, compressed tannins and a long, long finish. Racy and refined. 415 cases made.Author: James Suckling
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95Revealing a style similar to Pavie-Macquin, this backward, dense purple-colored St.-Emilion exhibits a liquid limestone-like character along with abundant floral notes, considerable depth yet a structured as well as tannic, backward, pure personality. It requires another 4-5 years of bottle age, and should last 15-20 years thereafter.Author: Robert Parker
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18Very dark crimson. Lovely round, convincing nose. This wine has both warmth and integrity on the nose. On the palate it may lack the full-on complexity and weight of Les Grandes Murailles but it is very much of the same style. Lots of tannin there for future development. Not tarty. Very slightly inky and pinched but lots in common with Chƒteau Les Grandes Murailles.Author: Jancis Robinson
Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
