Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 92 points

Full ruby-red. Nose of roasted tobacco, mocha and currant offers considerable sex appeal. Silky, vinous and long on personality warm iron and graphite notes add complexity to the red and black berry flavors. Very rich and deep. Finishes quite long, with lovely dusty tannins. With his third commercial release, Raynaud has produced a wine that proves the high quality potential of his site.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 91 points

This elegant, exotic, lush, medium-bodied, Burgundian-styled St.-Emilion boasts great complexity along with an enticing perfume of blueberries, blackberries, and flowers. Although it does not possess a great deal of weight, it offers pure fruit, sweet tannin, and no hard edges. This is a textbook example of Bordeaux at its richest and most elegant. It will be delicious in a few years, and evolve gracefully for 14-15 years.
