89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008

($45-$55) Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, chocolate and leather on the nose, which suggests a wider range of ripeness than the 2006. Unusually sweet and lush for this wine but in a youthfully sullen stage, hinting at sexy oak tones and some leafy high notes. Densely packed but tight and tannic today, with its structure dominating. This needs patience.

Great Bordeau!

Great flavor - smooth with a nice lingering finish! One of my favorites from Bordeau! (Of course, I like most all Bordeaus from the Pauillac region).
One of the best I've had

This wine opens up after at least an hour or two of decanting. With undertones of tobacco, mineral spirits a bit of leather and current. Soft on the palette with a clean finish. An all around winner and great food wine. Had this wine alongside a 2003 Rauzan-Segla Margaux at $100, also an excellent wine with very similar characteristics. I would definitely get this one again for the price.
