Parker (76)

The 1970 is better than the 1971 or 1975, but certainly exceeded in quality by most of the classified growths of the Medoc, not to mention a good number of Crus Bourgeois. This is certainly the type of wine to foster consumer ill-will toward expensive, presumably ``great'' first-growth Bordeaux. Compact, austere, lacking fruit and richness, this wine has adequate color and tannins, but not much flesh to cover the bones.

Winespectator / James Suckling (88)

Medium garnet-ruby; fragrant, ripe cassis and tar nose, with spicy accents; elegant, ripe cassis flavor; less concentrated and less full than Palmer or Rausan-Ségla; perhaps slightly dried out.
