Wine Spectator: 92 points

Black in color, with impressive aromas of flowers, tar, licorice and ripe fruit, such as currant and sultana. Full-bodied, with a solid concentration of fruit and ultrapolished tannins. Better than from barrel. Best after 2011. 15,500 cases made.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90 points

This deliciously sexy, seductive style of wine from Prieure-Lichine is very much in keeping with how this wine can perform in a top vintage, offering lush fruit, sweet tannin and a silky, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with notes of flowers, blue, red and black fruits, some underbrush and loamy soil nuances. Suave, round and juicy, this wine has reached its mature period, and should stay there for at least another 5-10+ years.

Vinous: 90 points

Bright ruby-red. Cassis, bitter chocolate, nutty oak and a whiff of sweet butter on the nose. Fat, sweet and fairly full-bodied, with mocha and smoke notes and a suggestion of lees (consultant Stephane Derenoncourt does a lot of work with the lees and minimal racking here). At once fruity and solid, finishing with ripe, granular tannins.
