93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Distinctly wilder on the nose than the foregoing samples, offering blackberry and game aromas. Dense, silky, very ripe and deep, with a distinctly glyceral, creamy character to the palate-saturating dark fruit flavors. Finishes with outstanding breadth, suave tannins and explosive fruit. Due to the high percentage of millerande grapes, the potential alcohol here was 12.7%, the highest ripeness that Arnaud Mortet can recall for this premier cru. This beauty leaves the taste buds quivering.  (2/2014)
