    "I hadn't had the chance to try this wine since the early '90s yet I had always thought it was perhaps the class of the DRC '83s and this bottle did nothing to dissuade my view, primarily because there is virtually no trace of the hail taint that detracts ever-so-mildly from several of the others, particularly the La T√Ęche. An expressive, elegant and spicy nose that has now gone completely secondary with traces of tertiary notes, particularly sous bois introduces rich, full, sweet and delicious flavors that retain a fine sense of underlying power and harmony, all wrapped in a concentrated, velvety and long finish." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, July 2007)
