Gorgeous nose of warm stones and dark fruits. Full body with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins, and a long and intense finish. Best ever. Best after 2016.

It is impressively pure and well-built, with far greater concentration and length than I ever remember this wine having in the past. Forget it for 5 years and drink it over the following three decades.

A particularly successful vintage, that is absolutely ready to drink right now. Expect to find a good crop of blueberry and blackberry fruits, deep in colour with warming vanilla spice, mocha and grilled oak notes, balanced and polished. Soils here are largely Quaternary gravel (Terrace 4, as per much of the classified Médoc estates), on limestone subsoil, for the Cabernet Sauvignon, with clay-limestone outcrops for the Merlot.

With medium to full-bodied richness, a fleshy, opulent texture, and a great finish, this is just now in its early stages of maturity and has another 20 years or more of prime drinking. It's beautifully done and I'd be happy with bottles in the cellar.

Offers a very solid core of black Mission fig, blackberry preserves and freshly roasted espresso flavors, woven nicely with hints of alder wood, tar and pastis.

On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, soft, elegant tannins and ripe cherries with a touch of spice and olives in the finish. The wine still seems youthful, so another few years of bottle age will help add even more softness and complexity to the wine. Smoky red fruits, vanilla, tobacco and earthy aromatics create the nose. On the palate, the wine has soft, fresh, elegant characteristics, polished tannins and sweetness in the fruits on the back end. This has aged quite nicely.

Wine Enthusiast, September 2012
Ripe perfumed wine that has an immediately appealing richness. It feels opaque in its density layering tannins upon fruit with a luxurious velvet feel. The result is a wine that is almost drinkable now but which will age.
