Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 pts: "Even better from bottle than from cask, and one of the finest wines of the vintage, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals wonderfully sweet notes of charcoal, fresh mushrooms, smoke, earth, leather, cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term." (RP)  (4/2005)


Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 91pts: "Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds black cherry, cedar, graphite, menthol and chocolate. Cool, penetrating flavors of blue and black fruits, minerals, licorice and menthol, with hints of chocolatey ripeness. Rather laid-back Bordeaux , with the structure for mid-term aging. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and lovely length." (ST) (5/2005)


Jancis Robinson 17/20pts: "Deep crimson with a little evolution at the rim. Meaty, concentrated nose. Uncompromisingly dry but the tannins are not too painful. Just starting to come round and really not that different from this wine in a more successful vintage. But strictly for classicists." (3/2012)
