- Item #: i_350155Bottle Size: 750MLBurghound: 94BURGHOUND 94 POINTS - "The wood treatment has been almost completely integrated and allows the similar but more reserved, riper and more densely fruited and floral-suffused nose to display its charms while leading to elegant, pure and every bit as serious formidably-scaled flavors brimming with dry extract on the textured, concentrated and palate staining finish that seems to go on and on. Like the regular cuvée, there is less youthful austerity here than I'm used to seeing with more overall depth of material. A terrific '07 but note that ample patience will be required."
- Item #: i_351083Bottle Size: 750mlBURGHOUND 92 POINTS - "Initially there was some mild reduction present but some aggressive aeration allowed the notably stylish aromas of spice, red berry fruit, herbal tea and a hint of wood to express themselves. There is a lovely sense of detail to the supple, intense and focused middle weight flavors that display good if not truly special complexity on the balanced and solidly lingering finish. As is the case with many '07s today this is a lighter version of the appellation which would allow it to be enjoyed now even in magnum format. However, for my taste I would suggest holding this for another 6 to 10 years first to allow for more overall depth to develop."
- Item #: i_352552Bottle Size: 750mlALLEN MEADOWS, BURGHOUND 89 - 91 POINTS - "A beautifully elegant red berry fruit nose nuanced with spice notes, in particular anise and clove, both of which are featured on the fresh, energetic and supple medium-bodied flavors that are almost delicate on the wet stone suffused finish. An understated wine that is detailed and has the lovely sense of underlying tension."
STEPHEN TANZER 90 POINTS - "Medium red. Raspberry, mocha and earth on the nose. Juicy and high-pitched in the mouth, with nicely delineated berry flavors joined by a riper note of fruit compote. Ultimately a seductively sweet style, but bright and juicy on the lingering, minerally aftertaste, which features fine-grained tannins."
