93 points from the Wine Spectator! They say, "Power to spare. This inky, thick-textured red carries an enormous load of toasty oak and ripe black fruit, yet remains balanced, even graceful on the palate. Coffee and chocolate notes from oak dominate now, but there's plenty of stuffing to age. Like a bodybuilder: not quite natural, but impressive. Tinta de Toro. New joint venture between Michel Rolland and J. & F. Lurton. Best after 2005. 750 cases made. (TM) 3/31/2004" 92 points from Robert Parker! He says, "The seductive, dense ruby/purple-tinged 2001 offers a smoky bouquet with copious quantities of black cherry liqueur intermixed with black currants, licorice, smoke, and barbecue spice. Fleshy, medium to full-bodied, pure, long, and seamless, consumption over the next 5-7 years is suggested. Bravo! This is the first release from a partnership between Michel and Dany Rolland of Libourne, and the well-known family of Jacques and Francois Lurton of Graves (the name is Spanish for Champs Elysees). It is a 1,000-case cuvee of old vine Tinto de Toro aged in 100% new French oak for 16 months prior to being bottled unfiltered. (4/2004)"
