Tasting Notes:
rated: March 1, 2004 , Wine Spectator winespectator.com
87 points " Aromas of crushed fruit with chopped fresh herbs. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a slightly earthy finish. Best after 2007. Tasted twice with consistent notes." Best 2007-
rated: March 5, 2004 , Decanter decanter.com
3 stars "Very scented, elegant fruit, quite succulent, lovely succulent fruit, and long. Real quality. 2-5 years." Best 2006-2009

90 points "A terrific sleeper value...boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as a rich nose of melted licorice, espresso roast, black currants, minerals, smoke, and earth. This opulent, medium-bodied St-Emilion exhibits abundant quantities of fruit and glycerine along with a fleshy, ripe, expansive finish with no hard edges. Some tannin lurks beneath the surface, but this is a beautiful wine to drink now and over the next 10-12 years." Best 2005-2015
rated: October 13, 2004 , La Revue du Vin de France
4.5 stars "Un nez épanoui de fruits noirs, de réglisse, avec des notes de cacao et de violette. Une bouche voluptueuse, chaleureuse, avec une ossature tannique soyeuse qui garantit à ce vin un beau potentiel."
