One of the best undervalued wines in Napa Valley.

Very rare I give a wine 100 or close to it. Incredible depth, still two or more decades of life but in a place of maturity that's impossible to resist. Coffee, dark chocolate, spice, just incredible. Ordered 6 more.

Needs some time to blow off a little funk and for the fruit to show through. Decant for about 30 mins before diving in. Still loads of fruit and some nice acid. As you'd expect, a majorly structured wine albeit a bit chunky.

Needs air, a tad reduced, opens up beautifully and warrants its high scores

Perfect storage, full saturated cork, incredible wine. Nose and palate are in full sync and this wine will not get better, and in fact it would be hard to even get better. Beautiful!

Disappointing. Decanted for 2.5 hrs. Side by side with the 10 it paled in comparison. All these other high scores? Either it wasn't a very good bottle or nobody dares rate it this low. Haha.

Very rare I give a wine 100 points, but in this case deservingly so. Decanted for 6 hours which obviously allowed me to even come close to understanding the potential of this wine. Monumental and eclipses the 09 by a mile.

Very good potential here Still a baby and while the nose has the richness of the vintage, in the mouth it's balanced and structured. An especially fine Village wine.

Beautiful. By its golden color you'd think there was some premox happening. Nope. Just a gorgeous wine with incredible texture that hits front, middle and back. Decanted and got even better and better with air.

Direct from the Domaine's cellar. Beautiful honied notes with enough acidity to allow for a 3 hour pleasure fest. This still has time left.

Still very youthful but at it's peak in this stage of its life. Probably another 10 years to go from a primary fruit standpoint. A bit more wood on the nose than I'd like but the floral characteristics more than made up for that.

This is a stunning wine. After some decant time it opened beautifully with loads of cocoa powder and tobacco on the nose and buckets of dark black fruits exploding from the glass. Still has time but maybe not enough acid to have it last for more than two more decades. Drink in the next ten years.

This is still a monumental wine and one that will age effortlessly for another two to three decades. Needs about an hour of decant time or else you'll miss the development.

Classic Bordeaux with every adjective you can think of. Needed a few hours of aeration to even begin to have it begin to peel the layers back.

A cool, steeliness dominates this wine. Loads of fruit on the front palate but loses a little on the finish. Just needs more time and a lot more than 30 minutes of aeration.

I did not like this at all. Tons of oak, no integration. Aeration is not the issue here. Not sure how it got decent reviews. Look for my remaining five bottles on Wine Bid as life is too short to drink bad wine.

This is evolving nicely with still a decade or more to go. Riper than expected.

Dark and brooding. As of now it's too massive to see if there will be some elegance down the road. Needs plenty of time.

Still vibrant and years ahead. This wine had never left Europe since release so in this case provenance really did show up compared to some of the other notes about this wine.

This was a monster wine that needs another 10 years minimum of cellar time. Loads of fruit, in balance and fresh acidity. Began to show well after an hour of airtime.

Beautiful wine. At first shy and reticent with loads of acidity, but then over the next couple of hours it opened up with floral aromas, dried autumn fruits and spice. Had to have been stored perfectly, but beware the cork. It's the size of today's 375ml's and needs to be extracted carefully.

This was absolutely spectacular. You'd be hard pressed to find even a first growth that would rival this wine at this age. Fruit, acid, texture, incredibly floral.
