Tasted single blind at Southwold. This does not quite have the same lift on the nose as the Les Forts or Carruades but with aeration I am certain it would have offered more. Aromas of macerated black cherries, boysenberry and a touch of graphite but always remaining tight. The palate has good depth, nice grip but not over-bearing. There is certainly a lot of unresolved new oak here and this certainly needs time with a slightly furry finish with notes of cedar and blackberry with just a touch of tar. Brooding intensity - one for the cellar (perhaps akin to the '90?) Drink 2015-2030+. Tasted January 2009. Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Holy wow! I don't know if there is such a thing as a "mouthgasm," but I just had it! It has a finish with which you could set the minute hand on your watch! Intense currant with wooly/velvety tannins! I think that they were trying to impress Parker... I'm sure they succeeded.

Consistent with my prior bottles. Nice aroma of black fruits, graphite, and some trace of vanilla. Medium bodied with tannin to shed. Silk and fine. Long finish.

Mixtures of red and black fruit, cedar wood, wet forest floor. Medium-full bodied with firm tannin and impressive finish. Entering its maturity period ,but still long haul to its peak.

This wine is dark, in every sense of the word. Great mouthfeel, silky and lingering. Representative of a solid Bordeaux.
