Expert Reviews

88-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Very good red-ruby. Redcurrant, blueberry, and lead pencil on the aromatic nose. Tighter in the mouth than the Armailhac; gives an impression of higher acidity and more aggressive structure. But opened nicely to show good black cherry and cassis fruit. Finer and more delineated than the above.
