Dianne Fisher Sommelier, ISG rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

My score is based on its structure and things to come. Muted on the nose in the glass so the bottle went through a double decant which was worthwhile, to separate the sediment that had formed. Benchmark Bordeaux aromas and full grippy tannins. The acidity is there to support cellaring this wine for a couple more years that it will be sure to benefit from. Glad I bought a second bottle!

A very ripe, plush, wood-influenced Bordeaux, perfectly in line with the general style of the 2009s, with generous dark fruit and spice character and no small measure of sweet oak influence. Yet the ensemble stays in balance, delivering a highly satisfying mouthful of wine all in all. One of the best wines from this château in memory. Drink now, though better in 2-3 years I suspect. Tasted February 2014. Value Rating: 2.5
Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Bordeaux Superieur punches well above its classification with rich cassis fruit supported by hints of vanilla, violet and herb. Approachable tannins provide good structure, balanced alongside fresh acidity and a satisfying length. Perfect with stuffed blue cheese burgers. Enjoy through 2015. Tasted March 2014.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
