Wine Enthusiast, April 2011
Big, rich, almost velvet in texture, this is a powerful wine. It has spice, black berry fruits, layers of wood and black plum skins. Powerful wine for long-term aging and medium-term accessibility. ROGER VOSS

Here is 2008 with a velvety texture yet the underlying bright acidity comes through at the same time. Medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Very pretty and energetic. Just opening now.

Packed full of Médoc character, this has cedar, menthol, leather and cigar box notes - a brilliant lesson in classic Bordeaux. It's extremely approachable and drinkable, and is showing some walnut character already, softened around the edges with lovely smoky notes and gourmet touches, and a mouthwatering, minty sign off with juicy lift on the finish. It should stay on this plateau for a long while yet. Harvest ran from 2 to 21 October with a high yield of 47hl/ha. 60% new oak.

Medium/full bodied, with a classic leaning, the tannins are just starting to soften. The fruit is a bit strict on the palate at this moment. In time, perhaps, 5-8 years, the wine should develop softer textures, along with more aromatic complexity.

A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it has a cooler, black-fruited, menthol, and tobacco-driven bouquet as well as medium to full body, still present tannins, considerable elegance, and outstanding length. Overall it’s a pretty, well-balanced 2008 that’s going to continue evolving for another 15-20 years.

A touch soft but persistent with pretty floral mulled plum and tobacco notes that glide over light rounded tannins. The pure finish lets the fruit hang elegantly. This wins on balance rather than depth. Drink now through...   A touch soft but persistent with pretty floral mulled plum and tobacco notes that glide over light rounded tannins. The pure finish lets the fruit hang elegantly. This wins on balance rather than depth. Drink now through 2014. -JM
