What experts say  
  17/20 "Leathery, with a twist of sweet vanilla. Loads of cassis and toasted coffee. Pretty modern. Crystal clear."  
  
89/100 "This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot possesses some elevated tannin, but also an impressively saturated dark ruby/plum color, notes of vanilin, black currants and forest floor, and a medium-bodied, well-endowed personality. Cellar it for several more years and enjoy it over the following 10-15 years. It will not make everyone forget La Lagune's 2009 or 2010, but it is a solid effort for the vintage."
  
  16.5/20 "The elegance in person with tight tannins which will bring a lot of charm later on. A style with finesse."
