85 points "Displays milk chocolate and berry character. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity, straightforward finish. Fresh and clean. Needs some bottle age. Taste the joy of 2005 for a good price. Best after 2008. " Best 2009-2012

"No one knows Merlot better than Christian Moueix, owner of the world famous (and Merlot-based) Château Pétrus. Year after year, the Moueix Merlot defines the grape. It's medium bodied with flavours of sour plum and blackberry, and notes of cedar and earth. The fruit is focused and firm, with bright acidity and a medium-long finish. It's pure magic with veal medallions and sautéed mushrooms, or baked pasta." Best 2010-
