For a first-growth, this is an unqualified failure. It’s hard to know what went wrong, but after numerous tastings it is clear that this is a superficial, light Mouton that is already revealing some pink around the edge. Fresh menthol-infused red and black fruit notes are present, but the wine is medium-bodied and dry with an angular, austere finish. Very disappointing.- Robert Parker Jr. (06/2009)
Full, deep red. Knockout smoky nose of cedar, leather, earth, truffle and game. Then rather tightly coiled and far less pliant than the nose would suggest. Strong acids contribute to this wine rather powerful structure. But I don't find the flesh shown by the best wines from this vintage. Finishes quite firm, youthfully backward and persistent. Still needs considerable bottle aging, but will this ever be truly satisfying? Drink 2010 to 2025. ST
