As I wrote last year this sensational sleeper of the vintage is not far off the pace of Gloria's brilliant 2005. Sweet cedary cigar box roasted herb and black currant fruit aromas are followed by a lush full-bodied textured concentrated wine. A steal in today's marketplace this is a gorgeous St.-Julien to enjoy now and over the next 15+ years. Good value.

Offers blackberry and black licorice on the nose turning to light jam. Full-bodied with lovely silky tannins and a long caressing finish. Beautiful and refined. Best after 2012. -JS

Sappy vinous and penetrating with good cut to the juicy currant and licorice flavors. There's actually as much tannin in the 2007 says technical director di Costanzo but this wine comes across as more powerful if not a bit more rustic.
