WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
Fabulous nose of crushed currants blackberries and forest flowers. Full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit and silky tannins. This is really holding back.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. 23000 cases made. -JS

An old style Pauillac yet made with far more purity and richness than the estate's ancient vintages this broad-shouldered muscular classic wine exhibits a saturated purple color and sensationally dense rich concentrated... An old style Pauillac yet made with far more purity and richness than the estate's ancient vintages this broad-shouldered muscular classic wine exhibits a saturated purple color and sensationally dense rich concentrated cassis flavors that roll over the palate with impressive purity and depth. The wine is tannic and closed but powerful and rich. It appears to possess length and intensity similar to the 1996. This is a great young Pauillac. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.

Dark ruby-red. Black- and redcurrants and smoke on the nose; less oak-spicy today than the '96. Silky and harmonious but currently rather withdrawn. Not quite as sweet as the '96. Here the substantial toothcoating tannins... Dark ruby-red. Black- and redcurrants and smoke on the nose; less oak-spicy today than the '96. Silky and harmonious but currently rather withdrawn. Not quite as sweet as the '96. Here the substantial toothcoating tannins come across as somewhat tougher but there enough sheer extract for balance. Interestingly this backward rather powerful wine suggests the structure and grip of cabernet while the silkier mouth feel of the '96 suggests a high percentage of merlot. 90(+?) points
