James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2013
Aromas of blackberry and blueberries with Chinese spices follow through to a full body with firm tannins and a mineral floral and chewy finish. Beautiful already but needs at least three or four years to soften and open.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
Rose mineral currant and berries on the nose. Full-bodied with firm and chewy tannins and a long finish. Polished and pretty. Could use a little bit more in the center palate but very good indeed.

The grand vin is the result of an increasingly strict selection process with approximately 50% of the production going into the final wine and the balance used in the Croix de Beaucaillou. The 2009 may be the finest... The grand vin is the result of an increasingly strict selection process with approximately 50% of the production going into the final wine and the balance used in the Croix de Beaucaillou. The 2009 may be the finest example of this cuvee I have yet tasted. Up-front precocious and generous it possesses a dense purple color a big broad unctuous texture and abundant notes of creme de cassis and black cherry fruit intertwined with hints of wood smoke vanillin and earth. This nearly viscous-styled wine can be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for 15+.
