Possibly one of two of the most concentrated St.-Juliens (Léoville Las Cases is the other), this 2005 shows wonderfully sweet tannin, a dense ruby/purple color, and lots of crème de cassis, licorice and spice. Full-bodied, opulent, and impressive, it is surprisingly soft, though it will certainly age nicely for 15-20+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The best wine from this producer in ages... A very beautiful red with blackberry licorice and currant on the nose.

Silky-sweet deep and broad with terrific concentration of currant and licorice flavors complicated by leather herbs and pepper. Finishes with thoroughly ripe broad tannins and noteworthy length and power. Costanzo says this wine needs another six months in bottle to gain in nuance.
