Wine Enthusiast, May 2012
The wine is immensely dark powered by black plum and a ripe complex structure. Already the elements are molding into place. Expect great things of this wine. - R.V.

It unfurls beautifully if you lend it five minutes. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins good substance very elegant and refined with a natural slightly earthy finish that is long in the mouth. Superb persistency - this is one of the top Saint Julien wines. Tasted April 2012. collapse

Great swathes of fruit cross the tannic core in this impressive wine. Hints of wood aging peek out from beneath the sumptuous richness and spice. It is ripe, dense and obviously set for long aging. Drink from 2018.

Very floral with blueberry and blackberry on the nose. Mineral undertones. Full body with chewy tannins and long intense finish. Serious structure and balance for the vintage.

Focused blackberry currant and cherry sauce flavors show notes of sweet tobacco and nicely roasted spice on the finish with integrated grip.-J.M.

Although not as backward as I expected given the general style that emerges from Anthony Barton-s beloved St.-Julien estate this wine will need time in the bottle once it is released in several years. An opaque purple color is followed by aromas of damp earth underbrush black currants cedar and hints of vanillin and incense. Medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic with good acidity as well as excellent delineation and purity it should be forgotten for 4-5 years and drunk over the following two decades. 90-92+ collapse

A sleek, refined wine with blueberry, mineral and dried-flower character. Medium to full body with firm tannins. Bright and racy. Better in 2018.

Delivers ample flesh at the core, offering plum cake, currant preserves and smoldering tobacco leaf notes, offset by a tangy hint of anise. Should settle in well enough after modest cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026. – JM collapse

Palate-staining red and dark fruit flavors show very good depth, with tangy acidity providing lift. Silky tannins add shape and grip to the very pure, long finish, which offers lingering notes of cream soda and violet. Though bigger and deeper than the Langoa Barton, it is not currently displaying that wine's great charm. - Ian D'Agata collapse
