...one of the most monumental wines Bordeaux has ever produced...exhibits a massive display of richness and extract, yet with pinpoint delineation and vibrancy...
Glorious aromas of very ripe fruit, with layers of spices and chocolate. Full-bodied, with big yet silky tannins and a long, long finish. Generous and seductive.
..Knockout nose of blackberry, espresso, licorice, minerals and burnished oak..terrific verve and clarity for a wine so ripe and rich..extremely youthful..Brilliant black fruit and mineral flavors...An outstanding vintage for this property.
Promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classe A in Sept 2012
