This is a stellar vintage from a highly-respected vineyard, and has received 90+ point ratings across the board. In 2016, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate assigned a score of 95 points, saying, “It is such a consistent wine, a Pauillac that never lets you down. Here it continues to sport a relatively backward blackberry and cedar scented nose, the graphite (pencil box) element a little more accentuated. The aromatic purr like a Bentley, unraveling with each swirl of the glass. The palate is very well defined with a rigid structure, well-judged acidity and hints of chestnut and cooked meat offering secondary notes on the dense finish that suggest a long drinking plateau. What a stupendous wine from Jean-Michel Cazes! (NM)"
