Wine Spectator: Offers a juicy feel, with lots of singed anise and fruitcake notes out in front of the dark plum and blackberry fruit. Delivers ample spice through the finish. Flirts with the exotic side, but there’s focus and cut here. 91 - 94 Points
James Suckling: Shows wonderful balance and finesse with salt, mineral and dark fruit. Hints of walnut too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a bright finish. Wow. Best ever. 95 - 96 Points

Since 1989 it has been owned by AXA and is run by Jean-Michel Cazes and oenologist Daniel Llose. AXA also owns Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Château Cantenac Brown and Château Suduiraut.
