Very little wine is produced (about 400 cases) from this tiny 5-acre vineyard, but it is always among the most concentrated and richest of Bordeaux. The inky/purple -colored 2007 offers sweet cassis fruit notes interwoven with notions of graphite, chalk dust, and toast. Full-bodied with terrific purity and intensity (14.5% alcohol), it should drink well for 20+ years. Drink 2010-2030 Read more

Saturated ruby. Very dark aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a sexy oak note of hickory smoke. Large-scaled, thick and sweet, with outrageous breadth for the year. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and palate-staining black fruits. For all its sweetness and size, this wine manages to maintain impressive verve. (I should note that an earlier sample was at least as rich but more porty and roasted, with a distinctly unrefined character. Obviously, my score is for the better sample.)

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

Well, not as over-the-top as the 2006, but the nose is still overdone for me, with black cherries, raspberries coulis, a touch of limestone and blackberry leaf. The palate is very tannic, but I think better balanced and with greater delineation than in previous vintages. Blackberries, minerals, loganberries with a certain minerality towards the finish. Very backward and primal, but certainly I warm to this much more than recent vintages. Tasted April 2008.

James Suckling - Wine Spectator

Dark-colored and very spicy, with meat, dark fruits and cigar box aromas. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and masses of new wood. Impresses with its opulence and structure. Needs time in the bottle. Best after 2013.

Dark mulberry colour. Quite raw on the nose. Very rich and sweet at first and no dry elements. Well done! Thick and sweet and very modern but well judged. A real hedonist’s wine. For those who like seriously luscious modern wines in which you can stand a spoon up. 17/20
