93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2004

($150-$179) Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry, cedar, coconut, minerals, lead pencil, chocolate and tobacco leaf. Juicy, lively and penetrating, with sharply delineated flavors of blackberry, raspberry and rose petal. Boasts the classic inner-mouth energy of this great first growth, but also grew increasingly silky with extended aeration. Finishes with tongue-coating tannins and superb lift.

Great bottle of wine

Some day treat yourself to a bottle. You deserve the best. Truely one of the best bottles that I have consumed in years. I got mine a t a store in Jacksonville, NC. Wines & Wares. They had a bottle of Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 1998 that I wanted also but could only afford one. Treat yourself someday. Just traveling through and found that great little wine and beer store in Jacksonville. Thanks Guys.
