Wine Spectator 90 points - The rounded and perfumy plum and boysenberry fruit is laced with a mesquite note, while a light licorice snap hint checks in on the finish. A light sandalwood edge pinches the finish, but the flesh should absorb that in time. An elegant style of Pomerol. Best from 2016 through 2022. 1,833 cases made.-JM  (Mar 31 2015)

Vinous 90 points - Good full ruby. Expressive aromas of dark plum, blackcurrant, mocha and sweet spices. Dense, supple and suave, with sweet, deep, fleshy flavors of plum and mocha supported by a firm acid spine Finishes very long and refined, with polished tannins for the year. This struck me as a lot less heavily extracted than past versions. Superb wine in the making. 90-92 Points  (May 2013)

Wine Advocate 91 points - From proprietress Odette Barrau-Badar, this vineyard, which is fabulously located just adjacent to Vieux Chateau Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, has produced a 2012 with a dark plum/purple color. There is often considerable Cabernet Franc in this blend, and I think that comes through in this wine with its notes of forest floor, earth and spice. It is fragrant, medium to full-bodied, rich and savory. This is another meaty, concentrated, very successful 2012 Pomerol It should drink well for 20 or more years. (Apr 2015)
