Fresh and very youthful still with currants, flowers and liquorice character. Full body with fine tannins and a racy, fine finish.
Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very well defined, very fresh bouquet with blackberry, black plum, cedar, graphite and a touch of undergrowth. There is a certain “honesty” to this nose. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip, a little dry on the entry, quite foursquare but so well balanced and displaying such clarity on the finish, with hints of cedar and truffle lingering on the aftertaste. Superb. Tasted March 2011. (NM)
Focused, with a still-juicy edge to the mix of black currant and black cherry compote flavors, which are giving way steadily to mouthwatering tobacco and iron notes and refined singed cedar threads through the finish. Textbook Pauillac.(Blind '01/'03/'05 Bordeaux retrospective.) (JM)
Good red-ruby color. Sexy, highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, licorice, mint, minerals and flowers. Classy, bright Pauillac, with suave dark berry and mineral flavors nicely shaped by firm acidity. Offers early sex appeal but has the structure for a long life in bottle. Finishes with ripe, spreading tannins and excellent grip and length. (ST)
Very solid, thick Pauillac nose. Lots of matter here. This is the Ghislaine Barthod of the Médoc! Masses of density though not a lot of lift. Fresh finish. Drink 2017-2030. 17/20 points. (JR)
