What experts says  
  
17.5/20 Dark, lively crimson. Liquorice nose. Very smooth and opulent and pretty gorgeous. Dry finish. Lots packed into this. So different from the more obdurate, stinky old style! Wonderfully ingratiating.
  
  88-90/100 "Quite alluring. The palate is medium-bodied, well balanced with lovely ripe, red-berried entry, raspberry, cooked meat, leading to a harmonious finish that satisfies. Very fine."  
  ** (Remarkable wine) "The Petite Chapelle is elaborated from four different terroirs, vinified separately (Final blend is realised during the maturing process). The success is here with this supple and harmonous wine, which will age well. There is structure, nice tannins and a superb nose of red fruit jam."
