16.5/20 "Blackish crimson. Low-key nose with rather electric fruit. Very firm fruit. Serious stuff with real spine. Well done!"

87/100 "Loads of berry fruit intermixed with some roasted herbs, spice box and licorice can be found in this excellent Haut-Medoc, which has medium body, lots of fragrance and very pure flavors. Drink it over the next 5-7 years."

89/100 "Focused, with solid bitter cherry, plum and cassis flavors framed by judicious toast. Lingering tobacco and iron notes keep this nicely grounded. Best from 2013 through 2018."
