93 points "The 1989 and 1990 are two terrific examples from this "sleeper" chateau situated on the Pomerol/St.-Emilion boundary, neighboring Cheval Blanc. I have drunk the 1989 multiple times since I purchased it for a modest price when it was offered as a future. The wine is typically forward, with an opaque purple color, and an intense, sweet black-raspberry, cedary, toasty-scented nose. In the mouth, the wine defines the word "opulence" with its viscosity and superb levels of jammy black fruits nicely dosed with high quality wood. Sweet and expansive, this is an exuberant, flamboyant St.-Emilion that should drink well for 10-15 years. Think of it as a wine built along the lines of the great 1971, only superior. " Best 1997-2012
