James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Best wine ever from here with layers of ripe fruit spices and milk chocolate character. Full and long. Velvety. Gorgeous. Best after 2018.

On the toasty more modern side of the spectrum with ambitious roasted fig apple wood and blueberry confiture notes followed by racy graphite espresso and blackberry pâte de fruit. Not shy but has the density for balance. ...

Perfumed aromas of black fruit compote mocha chocolate and touches of fresh turned earth lift from the glass with ease. This modern-styled release has all the juice high-quality French oak and terroir expression to garner attention as one of the best values from the 2009 vintage. As delicious as I remember it from barrel two years ago the entry is lush and broad with precision only a Left Bank wine can possess. In ripe vintages St Estephe shows incredible depth of fruit tempered with structure many warmer regions lose in such years.
