WE 94
Wine Enthusiast, April 2013
(92–94 points) Barrel sample. A solid effort, this is a wine with great fruit and firm structure to support it. Ripe and full in the mouth, it's a firm and complex wine with a delicious juicy aftertaste. ROGER VOSS

Wine Spectator, January 2015
This offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. Best from 2017 through 2025. — J.M.

This is very intense for the vintage in the Médoc with blueberry, mineral and blackcurrant character. Full and chewy. Needs two or three years to soften but already there.

Decanter, April 2020
First bottle of this was corked (these were my bottles stored at home, so can't say if this would be true for château storage). A second bottle was much better, more earthy and rich than the 2011 but less exciting right...   First bottle of this was corked (these were my bottles stored at home, so can't say if this would be true for château storage). A second bottle was much better, more earthy and rich than the 2011 but less exciting right now. This has soft raspberry, blackberry and cassis fruits, a gourmet edge and fine tannins that are pretty supple already. This is just starting to open, and has balance, potential to develop further. It grows on you in the glass, revealing complexity as it unrolls. 53% of the harvest went into the 1st wine, 60% new oak. Harvest October 1 to 17.
