"This lower pedigree wine represents undeniable quality/value rapport in 2005. This vintage is so deep in quality among the better run, less heralded estates, that these wines should appeal to readers looking for terrific values from Bordeaux. Most of these wines are Merlot-based and will be drinkable young. Sleeper of the vintage."
"Medium-bodied, with pleasant fruit and a fine, silky finish. From the manager of Cheval-Blanc and Yquem." -85-88 - Wine Spectator
"Pleasant and dry, with raspberry fruit. Smooth, with plenty of soft, easy fruit. A real crowd pleaser." - Good/Very Good - Wall St. Journal - 01/11/08
