...reveals an essence of creme de cassis character which sets it apart from other Pauillacs. The wine is displaying plenty of tannin, huge body, and sweet black currant fruit intermixed with minerals and subtle oak. Massive, extremely structured, and with 25-30 or more years of longevity...A superb, classic Pauillac. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. eRobertParker.com

Showing quite well. Lots of red currant holding up the darker fruits, minerality, but oxidized quickly. Drink now IMHO

Pretty bretty. The fruit was still present and fairly fresh. Just not to my liking. My fellow Bordeaux drinkers were in love though.

Elegant and drinking very well at the moment. Has a little funk but not over the top

Surprise of the night! Elegant, plenty of fruit and a terrific weight and balance. A Classic claret. No doubt it won't get better but any concerns that it might be over the hill were assuaged.
