International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($128) Deep red. Pure, highly nuanced nose melds dark cherry, dried rose, minerals, brown spices and a medicinal whiff of menthol. Wonderfully suave and ripe but in the cooler style of the year. But this very classy wine possesses a fine-grained texture and superb penetration of flavor. Finishes very long and youthfully medicinal, with substantial dusty tannins and superb grip. A wine like this is almost more impressive than a great Bonnes-Mares from an outstanding year.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Cask Sample. A certain mossiness on the nose. Very, very chewy. Hard work now, but certainly lots of tannin. Absolutely no charm.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Intense and unevolved, with blackberry, earth and mineral flavors and a firm backbone. Almost impenetrable now, yet the finish is long and fresh.Author: Bruce Sanderson
