Vineyards 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. Average age of vines 48 yrs. (Big, powerful and rich, great St. Julien)
89-91 Wine Spectator Barrel Sample
"Deep ruby-red. Ripe, deep, brooding aromas of crystallized berries, minerals and spices; much more primary than the 2001. Then very ripe, dense and thick in the mouth, but with the vintage's lively acidity framing the candied berry flavors and extending the finish. This is better than the sample I tasted last year. Contains about 3% malbec, from vines planted in the 1980s.
Range 89-91 points"

The Wine Advocate
"Aromas of sweet plums and tobacco follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. A bit austere but well made. Best after 2008."

It doesn't have the concentration and powerful punch of a...Read More About St-Julien
