Even after the Clos de l’Oratoire this is extraordinary. Inky dark, wonderful nose, full of crème de mûre, very sweet and full, very powerful, but it is the underlying finesse which makes it exciting and gorgeous. 100% new wood, so it will be oaky in the end, but judging by the 1996 the wine will stay ahead. One of the best wines of the vintage. L&S (Mar 2005)

This is one of St.-Emilion's most impressively constituted and expressive wines. From its saturated purple color, to its soaring aromatics (pain grille, jammy black fruits, chocolate, roasted coffee, and smoke), this full-bodied, meaty, chewy, powerful wine is loaded with extract, sweet tannin for the vintage, and possesses a layered, multidimensional finish. It should continue to improve for a decade, and drink well for 15-20 years. 2007-2020. Rating: 90 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Mar 2005)
