Rated 94 points from Wine Spectator; March 31st, 2008:
"Dark in color, almost black. Aromas of raisin, spices and blackberry follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Has loads of fruit and toasty oak. This is exciting. A new 1947? Best after 2016. 2,415 cases made." –JS
Rated 89+ points from The Wine Advocate; eRobertParker.com issue #219 June, 2015:
"This is a fruit-driven, medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion, with a dark ruby/purple color, ripe plum and black cherry fruit, good spice and earthiness. This 2005 represents the beginning of the resurrection of this famous estate, which was once owned by the huge Cordier firm, but now produces wine under the auspices of the brilliant consultant Hubert de Boüard. Anticipated maturity: now-2028. Drink: 2015-2028."
