The Wine Orbit - Sam Kim (New Zealand) December 2015
4.5 Stars & 90 Points A stylish red, the fragrant bouquet shows classic Bordeaux aromas of cassis, mixed spice, cigar box and roasted nut. The palate delivers elegant yet flavoursome palate, filled with attractive fruit flavours as well as subtle savoury notes. It is beautifully balanced and harmonious, and offers smooth mouthfeel and a lingering finish. At its best: now to 2019.

Buying Guide Rating: 86"A solid, structured Bordeaux. It shows black berry fruit flavors, lifted by acidity and rounded with dark plum, dry spice and firm tannins. There’s a fine, juicy richness to the finish, which leaves fruit and dry tannins firmly in place."
Wine Guide - Andreas Larsson (France) July 2008
Wine Guide 2008 by Andreas Larsson – Best Sommelier of the World:"Stylishly classical nose of dark fruits and leather, some hints of mocha (…), good dark fruit, medium length."
