Tasting Notes

92 points Robert Parker: "This elegant, stylish, deep ruby/purple-colored effort reveals notes of smoke, graphite, and red as well as black fruits in its perfumed, nicely evolved bouquet. With sweet flavors, medium body, outstanding concentration, and impressive purity, this finely-etched Pessac-Leognan should hit its peak in 4-5 years, and drink well over the following 12-14+." (06/04) 91 points Stephen Tanzer: "Saturated medium ruby. Highly aromatic nose of dark berries, leather, tar, tobacco and violet. Suave and fine-grained, with lovely concentration and pliant texture. The violet and tobacco notes carry through in the mouth. In a distinctly gentler style than the 2002, finishing with smooth, fine tannins and subtle persistence." (05/04) 90 points Wine Spectator: "The nose shows a great depth of blackberry, wet earth and mineral character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Needs some bottle age to come together. This shows class. A château in evolution. Best after 2007." (03/04)
