"Also around $32, this is usually my favorite Joguet bottling--but not this year. See the Chene Vert, above. Still, this is mighty fine, too. Rich and full bodied, it sports great depth and concentration, and a gorgeous, lingering, gripping finish. The fruit is not quite as exuberant as with the Chene Vert, but it sneaks up on you. This, of the two, may cellar better and be more rewarding with some time, and harder to drink young. But either way--this and the Chene Vert are two big winners. 92-94 points. "
