Wine Spectator 94 points: "Big surprise. Dark ruby, with a garnet rim. Cassis, berry, tobacco, cherry. Incredibly complex. Full-bodied, incredibly velvety, with masses of fruit, currant, berry, tobacco."—JS  (11/1998)


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 points: "This wine turned out much better than I expected. At a young age, it was somewhat disjointed and seemingly lacked acidity, but there is no doubting its level of concentration. It has firmed up and lost some of its baby fat, and now reveals plenty of sweet, smoky, leathery black currant fruit, a plush, opulent mouthfeel, and has reached full maturity. The color is starting to brick at the edge of the glass."—RP (6/2009)


Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 92 points: "Full red, with a hint of amber at the rim. Aromas of plum syrup, redcurrant, cedar, minerals, coffee and earth, with a tight core of spice. Thick, sweet and plush, with lovely restrained sweetness and solid underlying minerality. As rich as this is, its firm spine of acidity and substantial ripe tannins should enable it to develop for at least another 10 to 15 years. My second bottle was more bound-up and muscular in style but very Pauillac and of roughly the same quality, with lovely acidity and grip. Now through 2020."—ST (8/2002)


Jancis Robinson 18.5/20 points: "Very deep crimson but with lots of development at the rim. Appealing, ripe, gentle wine that flatters. Sweet, lively, dancing. Great expression of Pauillac. Dry finish. Very, very ripe but great, well reined-in ripeness. Excellent balance. Neat. Bit of lead pencils."—JR  (6/2002)
