    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the most amazing wine this estate has ever produced. It is rich and long-lived. It boasts a dark purple color, as well as sweet, earthy, black currant and cherry liqueur-scented nose. There is terrific fruit intensity and purity, as well as moderate tannin in the medium-bodied, impressively rich finish. A sleeper of the vintage.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep ruby-red. Cassis, blueberry, smoke, shoe polish and tobacco leaf on the nose, plus a hint of confiture Sweeter and denser than the '97; quite Pauillac in style. Finishes with dusty, even tannins. Youthful and strong for this wine. 87-89 points.

    Underwhelming. Band-aid funk, pretty simple.

    Wine turned bad, bought 4 Bordeaux from wine.com, 3 were bad, moldy, musty taste of wet cardboard... I decanted the wine for a whole day, didn't help too much.
