Reviews 92 points Vinous "It shows moderate bricking commensurate with its age, and an endearing, mellow bouquet of Earl Grey, pressed flowers, mulberry and touches of clove. The medium-bodied palate is a little rustic compared to modern-day Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but beautifully balanced with supple tannins that once were tough, and fleshy, with an animally, leather and hung game finish that slaps a big fat smile on your face. This is a wonderful wine that, if kept in good conditions like this, could give at least another decade of drinking pleasure. (NM)" 94 points John Gilman "The bouquet is deep, complex and blossoming brilliantly, as it offers up notes of fruitcake, bonfires, fading notes of barnyard from its youth, saddle leather, fallen leaves and espresso. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and resolving beautifully, with a great core of pure fruit, melting tannins, fine acidity, and superb length and grip on the complex and really blossoming finish. (JG)"
