90Robert M. Parker Jr.

...sumptuous bouquet of espresso roast intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberries, and licorice. The wine is rich, textured, succulent, and impressively pure and long...This is serious stuff and a sleeper of the vintage.

90Wine Spectator

Rich and earthy, with berry, game and cherry aromas. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, opulent fruity, vanilla aftertaste. Very well-done.

90Stephen Tanzer

Red-ruby. Exotic, highly aromatic nose combines coffee, spices and roasted meats. Sweet, lush and suave, with penetrating flavors of cherry, chocolate and game; at once vinous and thick, with an almost Burgundian texture...


France, Bordeaux, Cotes de Castillon

Bordeaux is the world’s most famous fine-wine producing region. Even non-wine drinkers recognize the names of Bordeaux’s celebrated wines, such as Margaux and Lafite-Rothschild. Located near the Atlantic coast in southwest France, the region takes its name from the seaport city of Bordeaux, a wine trading center with an outstanding site on the Garonne River and easy access to the Atlantic. Like most French wine regions, Bordeaux’s first vineyards were planted by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, then tended by medieval monks. Aristocrats and nobility later owned the region’s best estates and today estates are owned by everyone from non-French business conglomerates to families who have been proprietors for generations. Bordeaux has nearly 280,000 acres of vineyards, 57 appellations and 10,000 wine-producing châteaux. Bordeaux is bifurcated by the Gironde Estuary into so-called “right bank” and “left bank” appellations. Bordeaux’s red wines are blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It also makes white wines of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. There are several classification systems in Bordeaux. All are attempts to rank the estates based on the historic quality of the wines.
