Robert Parker – 93
Tasted in London with Justerini & Brooks. Not in the same league as the 2005, but a very fine wine. More introverted on the nose but well defined with an earthy quality. Baked red cherry, raspberry and cranberry fruit. Good lift. Sensuous on the entry, very smooth and cohesive. Not as complex or as riveting as the ’05, but feminine and gentle on the finish. Drink 2011-2025. Tasted January 2009.
Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025

Very animal nose. Very sweet, candied nose. Lacks a bit of purity. And the oak is a little obvious.
