Robert Parker – 92.0
Two separate samples in London. An opulent, rich nose with a lot of new oak. The palate is hedonistic, well balanced with succulent red-berried fruit. A ravishing, licentious wine, perhaps without the persistency or depth to merit as long ageing as other Grand Crus, but still a heap of sappy, succulent fun. Tasted January 2007. Drink 2009-2012
Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012

Dark crimson. Very rich and pungent and hedonistic. Rich and solid. A tiny bit brutal. Not quite ready because there is such concentration. Drying tannins on the end. Very solid – the vintage presumably!?
