James Suckling - Wine Spectator
Black licorice and tar aromas, with ripe blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of berry and Indian spices. Slightly jammy, but should come around nicely.

Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
Its ferocious tannins still need some resolution, and the wine is definitely what the French call a “vin de garde,” needing probably 8-10 years of cellaring. It is certainly concentrated, dense purple in color, with notes of iron, crushed rocks, black currants, kirsch and toasty oak. This is a chancy wine given the history that tannins always outlast the fruit, but there is a lot here and I wouldn’t want to dismiss it, considering all the good stuff it appears to possess.

Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, kirsch, cassis, tropical dark chocolate and minerals on the nose. Smooth on entry, then juicy and penetrating, with strong acidity and mineral verve keeping the dark fruit flavors quite bound-up today. Finishes with strong, toothcoating tannins and impressive vinosity. This slightly inky, chewy wine needs seven or eight years of patience, but is there enough flesh and fruit to support a harmonious devolopment in bottle?89 (+?) points

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator
A very rounded, polished style, with mocha and vanilla notes nicely integrated into the core of crushed plum, blackberry and cherry preserves. A toasty edge hangs through the finish, revealing an echo of coffee and a solid, lingering grip. Drink now through 2017. 2,500 cases imported.

Ian D'Agata - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(a blend of 60% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 20% cabernet sauvignon; 13.9% alcohol; 85% new oak; made from 45-year-old vines located on the prolongation of the Pavie slope on clay-limestone soils) Deep inky ruby. Intense, inky aromas of blackberry, spices, licorice and tar. Then sweet, supple and dense on the palate, with flavors of red cherry jam, mirabelle and oregano. Finishes with chewy, slightly dry tannins and strong spice and black pepper notes. If this develops more generosity and flesh and the tannins soften, it will merit a score at the high end of my projected range.

Rather light with the fruit fresh, with high acidity and bitter coffee.

Bettane & Desseauve - TAST
Incontestablement le meilleur millésime jamais réalisé par lapropriété. Beaux aromes profonds et précis. Vin intense, généreux,développant des notes de fruits noirs un peu compotés mais l’ensemble a beaucoup de vigueur et aligne muscle et chair. Leterroir de côtes révèle son potentiel. L’ensemble est certes marquépar l’alcool du millésime, mais sans rusticité ni lourdeur.17/20
