Reviews:
The Wine Advocate - "A fabulous sleeper of the vintage, this estate, which has made a succession of brilliant wines under the administration of Bordeaux's visionary Bernard Magrez, has turned out another terrific effort. A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine exhibits a sensational smorgasbord of aromas ranging from red and black fruits to toasty oak to licorice, high quality cigar tobacco, and spice box. Flavourful and full-bodied, with rich fruit, moderate but sweet tannin, and a long, pure finish, this is a dazzling effort in 2006 that should hit its adolescent stage in about 4-5 years and last for two decades. Excellent value" Robert Parker

Wine Spectator - "A rich, dark red, with cooked plum and licorice aromas. Full-bodied and long, with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Impressive for the vintage. Best after 2012. 21,870 cases made."

Connoisseurs' Guide - "50% Merlot; 40% Cabernet Sauvignon; 7% Cabernet Franc; 3% Petit Verdot. Here is a well-ripened and solidly filled wine that in many ways bridges the gap between the old and new worlds. Its concentrated, plum and black currant themes are framed by sweet oak and glimmers of chocolate are scattered throughout its length. Its ample tannins are buffered by plenty of fruit stuffing, and its exemplary balance guarantees five to ten years of real improvement. "
