"Subtle and already delicious. This is lovely. Loads of chocolate and berry character in this young red. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium-long finish. Best after 2007. 7,500 cases made. –JS" -Rated 92, Wine Spectator

"Abundant notes of sandy, loamy soil, forest floor, black currants, cherries, and unsmoked high-class cigar tobacco jump from the glass of this complex, perfumed Pessac-Leognan. Medium-bodied and lighter than many 2000s, it has resolved all of its tannin, and appears to have reached full maturity. This wine has such superb balance that I suspect it will last another 8-10 years. (reviewed June 2010)" -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Saturated ruby. Cassis, violet, minerals and considerable spicy oak on the nose. Dense but tight; conveys a stronger impression of acidity and structure than the 2001. Finishes ripe and long, with solid tannic spine, excellent grip and a subtle hint of licorice." -Rated 89-91, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
