91 points "This has a floral nose, with blueberry and mineral. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a long, gorgeous finish. Very subtle and complex. This is going in a much more refined style than before due to an increase in the Merlot. 66 percent Merlot, 32 percent Cabernet Franc and 2 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Score range: 91-94 –JS"

95 points "Opaque purple, with a sweet blue and blackberry perfume intertwined with licorice and graphite, the 2005 La Confession exhibits massive concentration and extraction, but this full-bodied wine pulls back from being over-the-top because of intrinsic freshness and admirable purity. It is a brilliant effort from the young Janouiex, but it needs some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028" Best 2012-2028
