89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006

($24-$28) Full red-ruby. Aromas of ripe plum, cedar and tar; superripe without being liqueur-like. Silky, fat and full, with atypical volume for this wine. There's enough healthy (natural) acidity here to give shape and freshness to the wine. Finishes with broad tannins that reach the sides of the mouth. It's hard to imagine a stronger vintage for this chateau.

Wow! What a great wine and what a great price! I am a Bordeaux fan, and this is one of my favorites. I subscribe to the daily, weekend, and special occoasion wine approach. This is my favorite weekend wine. Nothing better than a t-bone or ribeye with this one. On its own without a nice steak, it has a little much of an alchol taste, but with the food.....nothing better. I suggest opening an hour or two prior to drinking. At the end of dinner, you will be sad you did not open two bottles. That said, open two, enjoy dinner, and enjoy the wine!

This shares the same qualities as the 03 Pontet Canet, but think more red fruits than black. It could be the steal of the vintage.

Very ripe and dense, yet the nose is almost floral. Definitely needs a year or two, but this is superb for a cru bourgeois. I'd rate this a couple points higher than does Mr. Tanzer.
