Wine Advocate

This is the greatest Cotes de Castillon I have ever tasted. The 2005 Clos les Lunelles is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Inky/purple to the rim, the stunningly flamboyant perfume offers up scents of black fruits, spring flowers, and crushed rocks. The wine hits the palate with unbelievable concentration, full-bodied power, beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, wood, and alcohol, a layered, multidimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts for nearly 45 seconds. This superb achievement is a tour de force in winemaking. Drink it over the next 15+ years.

Score: 94. —Robert Parker, April 2008.

Wine Spectator

Shows wonderful aromas of crushed blackberry and blueberry, with hints of mint. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and a long, delicious aftertaste. Generous and beautiful. Best after 2012.

Score: 92. —James Suckling, June 30, 2008.
