Critics Ratings

‘Shows interesting aromas of chocolate, meat and berry, with hints of fresh cèpe. Turns floral and aromatic. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a medium finish. Very balanced and pretty. Elegant and seductive. This is the last year of LTHB.’ – Wine Spectator, 93/100 (Mar 2008)

‘Ruby-red. Plum, black raspberry and cedary oak on the nose. Pure but a bit tightly wound, with lovely texture and uncompromising dryness to the dark raspberry and tobacco flavors. With aeration, this gained in depth and breadth and showed lovely sweetness, but there's very firm acidity here for the vintage. Built to age. Should make an excellent last vintage for this bottling.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 90+/100 (May 2008)

‘Mid garnet with a rim that is fading. Manly, savoury nose and tannins starting to recede. No excess of tannins, alcohol or sweetness. Very savoury and fresh. Far from heavy. Needs food.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Apr 2017)
