International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($122) Bright dark red. Aromas of black raspberry, dark cherry, mocha and flowers, lifted by an exotic suggestion of sandalwood incense. Wonderfully sweet and gripping, conveying a strong sense of dusty extract but no easy sweetness. This has terrific acidity and inner-mouth energy without any shrillness. Finishes broad and uncompromisingly dry. Has buns of steel: this is for the cellar!Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94A backward, concentrated red, this is tight and closed. There's a sense of its deep black cherry, licorice and mineral flavors and dense ripe tannins, along with its refinement and length, but this needs time. Has a terrific finish.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18Cask SampleRich, dense whiff of truffles. Depth of flavour and lovely lift with some real intrigue. Red fruits. Much the most charming of the Louis Jadot Grand Crus. Spiny.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 02/26/2006
