    ($60-$73) Saturated medium ruby. Superripe aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice. Deep, powerful and penetrating, with a real warmth to the black fruit and spice flavors and superb breadth for this bottling. Finishes long and ripe, with lovely restrained sweetness. A big boy, with 14.3% alcohol. In fact, this is downright powerful.

    Hot summer, cold nights, ripened slowly and harvested late - the character of this decade ' unusual ' no longer hot v cool vintages of the past. Very dark garnet with dark brick rim. Very dark and very ripe but still pure. Spicy dark fruit, cassis, cigar box. Dark and beefy and savoury. Chewy but rounded. (JH)

    This is wonderfully balanced, with red fruits and hints of toasted oak. Full and long, with fine tannins and a bright finish. Gorgeous. Score range: 89-91

    I very much like this wine. Modern style with concentrated fruit. Much more powerful than previous years I have tasted. Excellent now, but will probably get better for another few years and last for many. Didier Romeux: |Quelques notes de grill‚ dominent encore le fruit … ce stade, celui-ci n'apparaissant vraiment qu'… l'agitation. En bouche, une masse incroyable de fruit submerge les papilles. C'est superbe de rondeur, de richesse, de d‚licatesse et de fraŒcheur. Aucun tannin anguleux ne vient troubler cette sensation. Tout est en harmonie. Une merveilleuse r‚ussite pour ce cru et une longueur … n'en plus finir. 92/100|
