96 Points - Decanter
I love this - there's concentrated cassis on the nose with a strong, smoky edging. On the palate the coffee and dark chocolate is clear, a little bitter in an extremely attractive way, leaning against the rich, sweet black fruits. There's no question those tannins are in full play. An excellent wine with a great life ahead. Matured in 60% new oak.

Bright dark purple. Straight-backed, classic nose with nuance and balance. Glossy and pure. Very fine tannins in a rather beautiful whole. Much more appealing than Langoa this vintage. Long and layered.
