"This is ripe, with a lovely beam of cassis and blackberry well-harnessed by seamless acidity. The rounded, enticing finish has a dash of toasty vanilla that's well-embedded." (WS)

"This is always the most St.-Julien-like of the Pauillacs (although occasionally Pichon-Lalande possesses a suave, St.-Julian character and less power than many Pauillacs). The dark ruby/purple-hued 2010 reveals sweet aromas of red and black currants, cedar and spicy background oak. It is an attractive, elegant, mid-weight wine with polished tannins as well as a restrained style. Drink it over the next 10-15 years." (WA)

"From 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the Borie family produced a Bordeaux wine that offers spicy cassis aromas, depth of flavor and a finish of ripe black and red fruits. " (JL)

"An impressive intensity of fruit here, with blueberries and lemon character. Full and very well-integrated, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Better than 2000?$$" (JS)
