90 pts.: Nov 15, 2010

Ripe but restrained, with nicely sinewy embedded, structure carrying solid black currant, black cherry and fig fruit, followed by graphite and sweet earth on the finish. Drink now through 2011.

87–88 pts.: 1st Apr 2009

As usual, this is a delicious northern Médoc, with the 2008 displaying a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet notes of black fruits intermixed with damp earth, lead pencil shavings, roasted herbs, and spice. Medium-bodied with good flesh, dense fruit, and sweet tannin, it should drink nicely for a decade.

Staff Picks

Jeffrey Spain: September 27, 2012
: September, 2012 5/5 stars

Aromas of black cherries, damp earth and cedar show with air, leading to a luscious, rich mouthfeel. Seductive and sophisticated, this wine is well-deserving of its number 96 ranking on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 of 2010.
