91 points "Wonderful mineral, berry, violet and aniseed. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Tight right now. A super value from the appellation of Fronsac. Best after 2005. 4,165 cases made. –JS " Best 2006-

"A serious vin de garde, the dense ruby/purple-colored 1998 offers abundant quantities of blackberries intermixed with licorice and coffee. Structured, dense, and concentrated, it requires 1-2 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2014." Best 2002-2014
