    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1990 vintage of this wine was ranked #6 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1993

    An exceptional vintage characterized by a balance between power and finesse. A sappy and silky texture, subtle and fresh red fruits aromas give to this wine a great ageing potential.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Has developed an elegance all its own, with great style, smoothing out the real intensity of the wine. This 2005 continues in that tradation, a spicey, fruity wine, which has restraint as well as hidden power.

    Beautiful currant, berry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with tar and berry character, fine tannins and a long finish. I was expecting a little more from this, but it's still outstanding. Best after 2013.

    Good red-ruby color. Raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco leaf and flowers on the nose. Red-fruity and refined in the mouth, showing none of the smoke, animal or chocolate qualities I associate with this chateau. Distinctly delicate and fine, with moderate density and suave, building tannins. Incidentally, the IPT here is 68, compared to 73 in 2004. A wine of finesse.
