SKU #1025137 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I bought this wine for myself because I thought it was a sleeper of the vintage, and I couldn’t be happier. My score in two tastings was identical to what it was seven years ago. Chocolatey espresso notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, loads of concentration and density, this is a beautiful wine that is both hedonistically and intellectually pleasing. The wine seems to have reached full maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Complex nose melds minerals, game, mocha, animal fur and truffle. Sweet and broad in the mouth, with very ripe notes of game and animal fur. Very rich, velvety wine, even if it is currently showing more texture than flavor. Tannins are sweet and pliant, though, and the finish is silky and very long. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2003)

K&L Notes

New ownership (Cathiard-Garcin family) has really paid off for this property. This is their best ever. Michel Rolland and Jean-Luc Thunevin both consulted on this wine. Blackish color. Tons of black fruits and smoky, toasty oak; plenty of round tannins on the palate. Layers of flavor. Quite an effort.
