"In contrast to the relative expressiveness of the Cros Parantoux this is almost mute though aggressive swirling does liberate a beautiful array of violet, spice and plum aromas that are trimmed in gentle sandalwood hints. The imposingly-scaled big-bodied flavors possess a velvety mouth feel thanks to the plethora of dry extract that does a great job of buffering the very firm tannic spine on the stony, detailed and massively long finish. While there is certainly very fine size and weight this is not what I would describe as a huge Méo Riche but everything is in perfect proportion plus the balance is impeccable. As is almost always the case this will not be a good candidate for early consumption so be prepared to buy it and forget it." (94-97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #57, Jan. 2015)
