Wine Spectator (92 points):
"Aromatic and plush, this red exudes rose, currant, cherry and sandalwood aromas and flavors. Firm, dusty tannins seep into the long, spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2038."
Burghound (89-92 points):
"A relatively high-toned and elegant red berry fruit nose is laced with airy floral and sandalwood aromas. There is good richness to the round, concentrated, pure and punchy middle weight flavors that culminate in a racy, intense and detailed finish that is refined, balanced and persistent. A MSD 1er of finesse."
"Ooh that has the very characteristic almost almond aroma of this cuvée – fresh and nice. Mouth filling, good texture despite a little tannin, fine complexity and really great length. Always a very fine bottle here."
