91 points "Expert Ratings: Wine Spectator: 86 points Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 88 points Merchant Reviews Wine Advocate 91 This is one of the biggest, richest Coudoulets yet produced. A healthy dark ruby/purple color is followed by a full-bodied wine with notes of blackberries, raspberries, earth, minerals, and spice. Moderately tannic and pure. Wine Advocate Professional Reviews By Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 00 Rated: 88-91 Full saturated ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, espresso and minerals. Dense, rich and sweet, with an intense spicy character and a note of espresso. Thoroughly ripe. Finishes with lush tannins and noteworthy length. Will be a great vintage for this bottling. " Best 2008-2013
