Haut Medoc 5me Cru Classe

Description and Reviews:
91 points Wine Spectator
Opulent red. Intense aromas of currants, cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. Best after 2008. (3/2003)
90 points James Suckling
A wine at its peak now, with tobacco, berry and spice character. Some oyster shell as well. Full and decadent. Soft and silky-textured. Drink now. Needs decanting. (7/2013)
Jancis Robinson
Changed hands in 1981 with only 20ha left of a large property. Still very deep with the merest hint of ruby and paleness at the rim. Very subtle nose - lures you in but there is no hint of overripeness here, rather a hidden message. Fresh and succulent with hints of tea and toast but very subtle ones. Really quite delicate and beautifully balanced. Neat, medium finish. (5/2009)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Notes of forest floor, bay leaf, licorice, red currants, and cranberries are offered in a Burgundian-like, fresh, vibrant format. The tannins have melted away in this medium-bodied, finesse-styled effort. (6/2010)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Medium ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, toasty oak and musky espresso on the nose. Sweet, dense and pliant, with a layered texture and considerable early appeal. Lush but nicely delineated. Finishes with ripe tannins and lingering flavors of dark berries and espresso. (6/2001)
