91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005

($30-$40) Red-ruby. Cool aromas of blackcurrant, espresso and menthol. Then sweet and pliant in the mouth, with concentrated, very pure currant, chocolate and mint flavors. Wonderfully smooth for the vintage. Broadens out impressively on the back end, finishing with firm, ripe tannins. St. Julien

Member Notes

tanzer is better than parker

My tasting notes are similar to Mr. Tanzer. Mr. Parker gave a 88 points to this wine which is 100 percent wrong against what I have tasted. This is a beatiful Pauillac. For my palate, you can drink this now, so seductive!!!!!

A solid wine with berry, currabt mineral charactor. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Best after 2008
