90 points "The nose shows a great depth of blackberry, wet earth and mineral character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Needs some bottle age to come together. This shows class. A château in evolution. Best after 2007." Best 2007-

92 points "An elegant, stylish, deep ruby/purple-colored effort, it reveals notes of smoke, graphite, and red as well as black fruits in its perfumed, nicely evolved bouquet. With sweet flavors, medium body, outstanding concentration, and impressive purity, this finely etched Pessac-Leognan should hit its peak in 4-5 years, and drink well over the following 12-14+." Best 2008-2020
