Lovely dark red. Lovely neat nose, intense, fine, fruity and mature. (...) Flavourful, very woven, very well constructed, it is velvety and caressing, strong under the velvet, as it advances to a finish of melting tannins and an impressive taste of violet. Very, very lovely length. Noble tannic grain. A great wine.

"Delivers breathtaking aromas of blackberry, currant, licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and supersilky tannins. Dark chocolate, currant, berry and licorice follow through. This is racy and beautiful.."

"On the palate, it is marvelous and melts gracefully with nuances before finishing ethereal. I have never known this growth so subtle and full both at the same time. It is a great, great wine!"

"(...) This wine exhibits beautifully pure notes of creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, pen ink, graphite and hints of toast and vanillin. The wine is full and rich, and although aged in 80% new oak, the wood is a subtle background component. (..)"

"Full-bodied with fabulous concentration, exceptionally high tannin, good acidity, and massive layers of richness that build incrementally on the palate, this monumental effort is more structured than their outstanding 2003. It may be the finest wine produced at this estate since the 1982 and 1961 Ducrus." Robert Parker - Rating (97)
