"This is one of the stars of the vintage. It is an extraordinary expression of elegance married to power. An opaque purple color is followed by aromas of black raspberries, currants, licorice, graphite, truffles, and earth. The wine is sweet and expansive. It is a model of purity, symmetry, and balance."

"In the mouth, it is the most refined Valandraud that I have tasted. Very supple in mid-mouth, strong, it keeps a good freshness.
