"This is impressive; a ripe, open wine, but showing some lovely, polished new wood flavors, vanilla and just a touch of spice. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 88-90
"Undeniably the finest La Pointe I have ever tasted, this corpulent, fleshy, dark ruby/purple-tinged Pomerol exhibits sweet mocha and berry fruit, medium body, excellent purity, soft tannin, and low acidity (an anomaly for 2005). Drink it during its first 10-12 years of life."
