Tasting Notes

Score: 88Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Score: 88/89Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (128), April 2000

Score: 87/89+Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (122), April 1999

This is a top property that has been making better and better wines recently. The 1998 is made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc with 65% new oak. One of the most attractive wines of the Médoc, this has a good core of ripe fruit and a good creamy texture. FV 15.5.
