Wine Spectator, 90 points: Vivid aromas of berries, vanilla and chocolate. Full-bodied, with lovely silky tannins and a long rich finish. A beauty. Best after 2006.
Wine & Spirits, 94 points: Rated, no tasting note given.
Stephen Tanzer's IWC, 93 points: (ST90-93 points) Very good deep red-ruby color. Initially mute nose opens to reveal a sappy black cherry and licorice aroma, but no sign of the superripe quality found in the best Lafleurs from decades past. Dense and...
Wine Spectator, 91 points: As good now as when we tasted this Tuscan powerhouse in barrel. Loads of fruit with a jammy character and a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied and tannic, but very closed. Built for aging; try after 1998. 2,500 cases made.

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, 90 points: The de Fargues ’95 has a ripe, generous, quintessential de Fargues nose with tangy marmalade, Seville orange and quince jus, though it does not quite have the razor-sharp delineation of a top-flight wine from the estate...
Antonio Galloni's Vinous, 95 points: The 1994 Masseto is another super-impressive wine in this tasting. The warmth of the year comes through in the super-ripe, dense fruit. There is plenty of underlying structure to ensure another decade of very fine...
Neal Martin's Wine Journal, 92 points: (NM90-92 points) A real surprise here. A lovely nose of truffles, tar and black fruits. Well-endowed palate with good depth. Deep and accessible with a toasty black tobacco finish. Fine length. Excellent.

Besides a great web site and set of videos that provide a good narrative and insights into the "personality" of the company, the pricing was very competitive (meeting or beating the usual sites I frequent in CA).
