Intense black-red, restrained but well-expressed concentration of fruit, a little spice and more going on than most other wines, good depth, personality and precision of fruit, good future. Drink 2014-25. 4 stars. Score: 17.5 Decanter Magazine,
Rich and ripe with soft black cherry fruit but not much real concentration on the mid palate. Very drying finish. Quite firm but sandpaper dominates. Score: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW,
Lovely core of blackberry and currant, with smoky oak and chocolate. Full and velvety. Delicious already. Score: 88-91 James Suckling,
A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. This seems lighter on the nose than Langoa Barton, but it has greater delineation and lift with notes of blackberry, cedar, wild hedgerow and a touch of black plum. The palate is medium-bodied, well-balanced with ripe tannins. Very cohesive and harmonious with a great clarity and focus on the elegant finish. Very natural. Tasted April 2008. Score: 90-91 Neal Martin,
Good ruby-red. Serious, sexy aromas and flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and camphor. Fat, sweet and suave in the mouth, with enticing firming acidity giving shape to the wine. More stuffing here than shown by its stablemate Langoa today. Finishes minerally, spicy and persistent, with good spine and verve for the year. Very nicely balanced wine, and not at all over-extracted. While Barton expressed the opinion, shared by many of his colleagues in the Medoc, that the merlots "were dull and lacked vivacity," the sample he presented had no shortage of personality. Score: 88-90 Stephen Tanzer, Intl. Wine Cellar
