  • International Wine Cellar
    Rating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 103, July/August 2002. ($125) Full, deep red. Reticent aromas of plum, currant, mint and cedar. Dry, penetrating and stylish, with very primary flavors and noteworthy vinosity. Classic claret intensity and grip without any excess weight. The flavors build impressively on the firmly tannic, youthfully tough finish. This bottle was still a few years away from full maturity and should last for another 20 years.
  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Nose is still quite closed - shows huge potential. Touch of leather. Austere Pauillac type fruit.
