Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006 - #33!"Wow. This shows so much ripe fruit and berry character with just the right hint of lead pencil and spice. Full-bodied and very chewy. Big and powerful. Beautiful wine. Superb. Best after 2012.95 Points, Wine Spectator

  • Decanter
    (From 2002 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Quite meaty, violety bouquet, shows elegance and class. Some sophistication on palate, smooth and ripe and very Pauillac. Good length, fine wine. Drink 2008-17. (17.25 points)
