15 is significantly more elegant.. Seems like parker missed the boat on 15 so gave this a huge score to make up for it. This wines pales in comparison to the 15 elegance depth and complexity... I am just saying.

    2/9/17, 6:41 PM - I have had this wine so many times do to my past exp as distributor. The wine can be amazing one day and flat the next .... its a total crap shoot. Recently the Corton, Rugiens and Epenots all good bit you have to catch this picky wine on the right day...

    3/7/17, 6:31 AM - its simple the wine is either consistently good or bad...Sorry seems to be luck of the draw with this producer. I drank an entire case of 2003 with no issues. 05 I have had several bad bottles.

Very dark color, darker than I would have expected. Excellent deep and rich tones.
