  • Dark cherries, spice. Not a lot of secondary notes going on at this point. Relatively soft, very well balanced, silky palate. Sweet finish. Lovely wine and easy to drink now.

  • Diner à l'État Major: Joli nez montrant un élevage racé, des épices, un peu de caramel. Cet élevage typique des grands crus de Guigal en jeunesse m'a encore envoyé à Bordeaux...(honte!). Magnifique bouche d'une élégance princière, avec des tannins d'une grande finesse. La texture ne ment pas, c'est un très grand vin, encore fermé, mais dont la fraicheur et la longueur sont déjà spectaculaires. 97+ pts (disons 94 pts au niveau plaisir ce jour là). Si tout évolue à la hauteur des promesses affichées, on aura un vin frisant la perfection dans 10 ans.

  • Dense, complex nose, lots of depth and concentration with notes of cherries, dark fruit, meat and spices. On the palate great grip, round but firm tannic frame, wonderfully pure fruit, lots of power, slightly saline, rich and very very long. My WOTN. Great potential. Excellent. 95-96+

  • Have been lucky enough to have tasted this in various vintages over the years and this was clearly the least impressive one-don't get me wrong, it's an excellent, even outstanding, wine and will certainly improve even further with longer storage. I just didn't find the first taste an overwhelming experience, and, well, I'm a little saddened by the fact that I've probably become very, very spoiled.
