Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: A foursquare, powerful wine that shows great ripeness, solid, firm red berry fruits, a touch of mint, and black, almost impenetrable tannins. Expect this impressive wine to age for 10–15 years.
Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: Unusual for a Bordeaux,
this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has plenty of
tannins, although they are embedded in the pure
black-currant fruits and the acidity. It shows the
gentle side of Comtesse—fruit and...
Wine Spectator, 94 points: For a second wine, this is superb. Mammoth, with an outstanding concentration of fruit and tannins and impressive cassis, tobacco and cedar flavors. Tightly wound and in need of time. Best after 1999.
Stephen Tanzer's IWC, 94 points: Good saturated ruby-red. Tight nose hints at currant and smoky oak. Highly concentrated, densely packed and built to age. As young as it is, it also shows a lovely velvety texture rare for this vintage. Finishes with...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 98 points: A candidate for the -wine of the vintage- the 2008 should have been purchased before it began to soar in value because of the significance of the number 8 in the Chinese culture (denoting good luck). Representing 40% of...
Wine Enthusiast, 97 points: Big tannins and impressive fruits are the hallmarks of this impressive wine. It is also subtle, not showing all its flavors at once, hiding beneath tannins and structure. For this fruity vintage, it shows a strong sense...
Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: This is a
structured wine, firm with tannins and still
showing some of the wood-aging. Red-berry fruits
are cut with crisper blueberries and considerable
acidity. This is going to be a firm wine that is lightened
Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: This generous, almost opulent wine has
both concentration and rounded fruits. It’s open

tannins, it’s densely...
