"Here the nose is similar to the regular cuvée from a compositional standpoint but the fruit is denser, slightly riper and more complex as well. The very concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent concentration as the copious dry extract both coats the palate and buffers the extremely firm tannic spine on the explosively long but impeccably well-balanced finish. This is distinctly old school in style and will require extended cellaring to arrive at its peak. I would not recommend buying this ultra-serious effort unless you have the express intention of cellaring it over the longer-term. 95 Points/Drink 2030+" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

"Bright, dark red. Tight on the nose, with black cherry, mineral and mocha flavors lifted by nuances of pepper and flowers. Very sweet and deep but reserved; even less accessible than the cuvée classique but showing terrific clarity of fruit. Best today on the very long, savory back end, which features suave tannins and pepper and saline elements.93+Points/Drink 2026-2038." - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
