98(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013
Full bright, deep red. More reticent and brooding on the nose than La Tache, offering aromas of raspberry, wild herbs, smoky minerality and underbrush lifted by pepper and light vegetal nuances. Sweet and dense but tight and penetrating, with terrific peppery, saline lift to the red berry and spice flavors. Displays the sexy early vegetility that's typical of this bottling. Finishes with outstanding building length and energy and utterly noble tannins. Really leaves the tongue tingling.
