Decanter average score: 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 16.5 Ronan Sayburn MS 17.5 Steven Spurrier 17
Ripe, open nose of lifted red and dark fruits. Has 2003 ripeness but has kept the Pauillac grip. The freshness is gone but there is complexity as well as vineyard character with graphite, gravel and cedar.
